Hurricane Preparedness: How Your Business Can Get Ahead of the Storm


Tuesday, June 25, 2024
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (EDT)
Category: Workshops

 

Join us for an interactive, virtual panel discussion on how local businesses can best prepare for the hurricane season and other local flooding events.

The not-great news?
"NOAA National Weather Service forecasters at the Climate Prediction Center predict above-normal hurricane activity in the Atlantic basin this year. NOAA’s outlook for the 2024 Atlantic hurricane season, which spans from June 1 to November 30, predicts an 85% chance of an above-normal season, a 10% chance of a near-normal season and a 5% chance of a below-normal season."

Oftentimes, the decisions that need to be made surrounding these events are last-minute, hurried, and stressful.

So what can you do to try and prepare your business? 
This interactive workshop will feature an exploration of many things you need to consider in times of crisis that will allow you to get ahead of the “storm.” Come put your plans to the test and learn where you can improve your preparedness for whatever 2024's storm season plans to throw at us. Come with your questions!

Topics covered will include:

  • Decision-making on disaster declaration, evacuation, and re-entry by governmental entities
  • Employee policies and other HR considerations
  • Physical property / assets protection
  • Available governmental resources
