  • Review your Hurricane Action Plan and update if required.
  • Activate the individual responsible for tracking the storm and advise the Person-in-Charge.
  • Ensure that the hurricane response and recovery team information is up to date and accurate. The Person-in-Charge should have an updated, printed copy of the list for safe-keeping.
  • Conduct a project meeting reviewing the members of the hurricane response/recovery team and their responsibilities. Review and confirm action items with the individuals responsible.
  • Ensure that all hurricane planning items have been addressed.
  • Monitor material deliveries and begin to consider the impact of material deliveries and the potential of stopping deliveries (especially for non-critical deliveries).
  • Determine material requirements (plywood, netting, banding, plastic sheeting, trailer anchors and tie-downs, concrete anchor screws) for protecting the site in its current state of completion and determine the material source and availability.
  • Prepare to secure the site (protect/secure materials and equipment, cover exterior openings, complete structures, brace equipment, clean site, etc).
  • Review what off-site company resources are available to assist with recovery.
  • Contact the corporate safety director, human resources and information technology personnel, as needed.
  • Consider updating the project’s Critical Path Method (CPM) Schedule Logic Diagram. This will be useful for reflecting the project’s pre-storm status and later establishing delays caused by the storm, damages and subsequent repairs.
