Hurricane Preparedness Planning for Marinas and Marine Operations

Creating a comprehensive Hurricane Preparedness Plan can significantly reduce the time and mental strain spent preparing a marine operation in advance of hurricanes and severe weather.

Preparing for a hurricane, or severe weather, requires early and orderly action. Just a few unprepared boats, marine craft or pieces of equipment can inflict significant damage to marine property. This damage may not be limited to waterside assets such as piers and wharfingers, but may also impact inland structures such as dry storage buildings, repair shops, bridges, shore-side offices, restaurants/businesses and nearby residences. These consequential damages – many of which are preventable – increase the scope of the resulting loss.
