Prepare & Stay Safe
Hurricane season (June through November). Floods and flying debris from the excessive winds are often the deadly and destructive results of these weather events. Slow moving hurricanes traveling into mountainous regions tend to produce especially heavy rain, which can trigger landslides, mud slides and flash floods.
Well-managed operations proactively put physical controls in place, such as the preparedness procedures and actions taken to respond to and recover from natural disasters such as a tornado or hurricane. Determining how a storm’s potential and local emergency services response will affect your operation is as critical as having a disaster preparedness plan in place to minimize the loss of life, assets and revenue. The three basic steps to an effective plan are preparedness (Before), response (During) and recovery (After).
