TROPICAL STORM WARNING:

When winds of 55 – 74 miles per hour are expected, a storm warning is added to the advisory message.

HURRICANE WATCH:

A Hurricane Watch means that hurricane conditions are a real possibility; it does not mean they are imminent. When a Hurricane Watch is issued, everyone in the area covered by the watch should listen to the local radio or television stations for update and advisories. Once a Hurricane Warning is issued persons in this area may need to take quick and decisive actions.

HURRICANE WARNING:

A Hurricane Warning means Hurricane conditions are expected within 24 hours. Hurricane warnings identify coastal area where winds of at least 74 miles per hour are expected to occur. A warning may alert areas where land fall is expected to anticipate conditions where water may become dangerously high. High waves, storm surge and flooding may contribute to the high water without high wind speeds over 74 miles per hour.

Department Heads:

  1. Strongly urge all of your staff members to initiate actions to protect their home, family, and pets in the event of a hurricane watch or warning is announced.
  2. Have Associate Preparation Checklists ready to distribute to staff.

    • Follow the City and County guidelines as they relate to storm status.
    • Follow Associate Preparation Checklist
    • Instruct before / during associates to make arrangements for their family and pets.

  2. Ensure that there is adequate water in all areas and consider water rationing.
  3. Ensure there is food service
  4. The Incident Commander and Section Chiefs will activate additional jobs from the HICS organizational chart as deemed necessary.

TROPICAL STORM WARNING:

When winds of 55 – 74 miles per hour are expected, a storm warning is added to the advisory message.

HURRICANE WATCH:

A Hurricane Watch means that hurricane conditions are a real possibility; it does not mean they are imminent. When a Hurricane Watch is issued, everyone in the area covered by the watch should listen to the local radio or television stations for update and advisories. Once a Hurricane Warning is issued persons in this area may need to take quick and decisive actions.

HURRICANE WARNING:

A Hurricane Warning means Hurricane conditions are expected within 24 hours. Hurricane warnings identify coastal area where winds of at least 74 miles per hour are expected to occur. A warning may alert areas where land fall is expected to anticipate conditions where water may become dangerously high. High waves, storm surge and flooding may contribute to the high water without high wind speeds over 74 miles per hour.

Department Heads:

  1. Strongly urge all of your staff members to initiate actions to protect their home, family, and pets in the event of a hurricane watch or warning is announced.
  2. Have Associate Preparation Checklists ready to distribute to staff.
  3. Advise associates to:
    • Keep track of the storm’s status via radio and / or T.V.
    • Follow the City and County guidelines as they relate to storm status.
    • Follow Associate Preparation Checklist
    • Instruct before / during associates to make arrangements for their family and pets.

HURRICANE LANDFALL:

During this phase Hurricane winds, rain, storm surge and flooding are being felt. All preparation should be completed prior to this phase.

  1. Ensure that all patients are moved from areas in which there may be windows breaking or failure of the structure. Patients may need to be moved into hallways.
  2. Ensure that there is adequate water in all areas and consider water rationing.
  3. Ensure there is food service
  4. The Incident Commander and Section Chiefs will activate additional jobs from the HICS organizational chart as deemed necessary.

High waves, storm surge and flooding may contribute to the high water without high wind speeds over 74 miles per hour.

Department Heads:

TROPICAL STORM WARNING:

When winds of 55 – 74 miles per hour are expected, a storm warning is added to the advisory message.

HURRICANE WATCH:

A Hurricane Watch means that hurricane conditions are a real possibility; it does not mean they are imminent. When a Hurricane Watch is issued, everyone in the area covered by the watch should listen to the local radio or television stations for update and advisories. Once a Hurricane Warning is issued persons in this area may need to take quick and decisive actions.

HURRICANE WARNING:

A Hurricane Warning means Hurricane conditions are expected within 24 hours. Hurricane warnings identify coastal area where winds of at least 74 miles per hour are expected to occur. A warning may alert areas where land fall is expected to anticipate conditions where water may become dangerously high. High waves, storm surge and flooding may contribute to the high water without high wind speeds over 74 miles per hour.
