EDT will welcome lead hurricane meteorologist Chris Hebert from ImpactWeather as a guest presenter. ImpactWather provides severe weather monitoring and notification as well as business continuity planning services to clients in a variety of industries. Chris has over 32 years of forecasting experience, and regularly travels the country speaking at events and seminars. Agility President & CEO Bob Boyd will also share the best steps for preparing your organization for the storms. We have all witnessed the devastating effects a hurricane can have on a community, and as we edge closer to the start of the 2012 season, the time for preparation is now.
“Your organization is more than just a place of business to your customers, employees and stakeholders. Your organization is a key aspect of their lives, and one that must be protected,” said Bob Boyd. “If your organization is affected by a storm, how well will you be prepared to serve those who depend on you in their time of need?”
2011 was a relatively active Hurricane Season, including Hurricane Irene which brought devastating floods to areas of New England rarely impacted by such storms. Agility Recovery responded to over 650 disaster events associated with Irene. According to Colorado State University’s Extended Range Forecast for the 2012 hurricane season, the chances of an El Niño event this summer and fall are relatively high, creating a below-average probability for major hurricanes making landfall along the United States coastline. However, coastal residents must be reminded that it only takes one hurricane or tropical storm to make it an active season, and they need to be prepared.
