Southern Disaster Recovery was a Major Supporter of the 2014 CCM Emergency Management Symposium held May 6, 2014 in Cromwell.

Connecticut has had five Presidential Disaster Declarations since Governor Malloy took office to help it recover from major storms, including Hurricane Irene, Superstorm Sandy and the 2013 blizzard.  The state received more than $373 million in federal disaster assistance after Superstorm Sandy.  State officials are working to ensure blocked roads are open more quickly after a disaster.
