Planning for 2008 Hurricane Season
William S. Properzio, Ph.D., Director, Environmental Health and Safety
With the 2008 hurricane season beginning on June 1st, it is important for colleges, departments and units to review their emergency planning efforts.
As a reminder, UF’s Departmental Tropical Weather Response & Recovery Plan template is available – http://www.ehs.ufl.edu/disasterplan/Natdispl.rtf.
The document serves to assist in planning for a hurricane including recommended actions before, during and immediately after a storm. The template contains baseline guidance for work units including checklists for potential hurricane closures.
Additional planning documents are contained on UF’s emergency management website – http://www.ehs.ufl.edu/disasterplan/
