Hurricane Preparedness 2011 - Call to Action

National Hurricane Preparedness Week

History teaches that a lack of hurricane awareness and preparation are common threads among all major hurricane disasters. By knowing your vulnerability and what actions you should take, you can reduce the effects of a hurricane disaster. Hurricane Preparedness Week during 2011 runs from May 22nd through May 28th. See the 2011 Presidential Proclamation.

Now that we have covered many of the hazards, it's time for you to make your plans.

Hurricane Safety at Sea

Hurricanes have been the cause of many maritime disasters and unfortunately, there is no single rule of thumb that can be used by mariners to ensure safe separation from a hurricane at sea. Instead, constant monitoring of hurricane potential & continual risk analysis when used with some fundamental guidelines become the basic tools to minimize a hurricane's impact to vessels at sea or in port. Read More about Marine Safety

This concludes our coverage of Hurricane Preparedness Week 2011.   We will monitor tropical weather conditions and report important information to assist you in staying safe and preparing for travel during hurricane season.
