GardaWorld Cash Services held its first Hurricane Preparedness Expo this June. The motto for the event was: Aware, Prepare and Act! There were emergency manager experts on hand, and specialty vendors, concentrating in disaster recovery supplies.
Though this year’s hurricane season (June 1 to November 30) is likely to be below average, calling for 11 named storms, including five hurricanes—two of which are predicted to attain major hurricane status—we have already seen Hurricane Arthur make landfall as a Category 2 storm. Hurricane season is the kickoff platform that is used to make people be aware, but we should always be prepared for natural disasters. Contingency planning, is not only effective in hurricane planning, but also year-round disaster recovery planning.
