Be Prepared for The Hurricane Season

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Hurricane Center defines the Atlantic hurricane season as running from June 1 through November 30. Generally, June is the month when the earliest named storms begin forming in the Atlantic Basin, and the most severe hurricanes usually form in August and early September.
To protect your project site during hurricane season, consider the following measures:
1. Develop a Comprehensive Plan: Create a detailed plan outlining evacuation procedure, communication protocols, and responsibilities.
2. Monitor Weather Updates: Stay informed about weather forecasts and warnings. Use reliable sources for updates.

3. Secure Loose Objects: Remove or secure any loose items that could become projectiles in strong winds.

4. Inspect and Reinforce Structures: Assess buildings and structures for weaknesses and reinforce them as needed.

5. Trim Trees and Vegetation: Trim trees and vegetation around the site to prevent damage from falling branches or trees.

6. Backup Important Data: Ensure that important project data and documents are backed up off-site or in the cloud.

7. Establish Communication Channels: Set up communication protocols to keep all stakeholders informed before, during, and after the hurricane.

8. Prepare Emergency Supplies: Stockpile emergency supplies like water, food, first aid kits, flashlights, batteries, and generators.

9. Implement Evacuation Plan: If evacuation becomes necessary, ensure everyone knows the procedures and routes to safe locations.

10. Post-Hurricane Assessment: After the hurricane passes, conduct a thorough assessment of the site for damage and safety hazards before allowing personnel to return. Address any immediate safety concerns and prioritize cleanup and repairs.

And last but not least: Get your ground protection ready.
