Although September is typically the most active month for hurricanes on the Atlantic coastline, hurricane season is far from over. This year has already matched previous records for the number of simultaneous storms in the Atlantic and the Pacific with six storms in mid-September 2019. Hurricane Dorian went down in the record books as the strongest storm ever to hit the Bahamas. For first responders and local emergency response agencies, making plans for disaster relief base camps will help to streamline the process of providing support for restoration when hurricanes hit our area.
Well on the Way to an Active Season
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), an active hurricane season is defined as having at least 13 named storms, seven hurricanes, three major hurricanes and a total of 111 accumulated cyclone energy units as defined by the organization. So far in 2019, we have seen 12 named storms, five hurricanes, three major hurricanes and 97 accumulated cyclone energy units. It is very likely that we will see plenty of additional activity as hurricane season continues through November.
Shelter From the Storm
Deployable base camps are one of the most practical tools for relief workers after a major storm. These disaster relief base camps offer a comfortable and mobile lodging solution for those providing assistance for areas impacted by hurricanes and other devastating storms. Laundry trailers are ideal for cleaning clothes after a hard day of work. Creating temporary partitions within a climate-controlled mobile sleeping trailer is a great way to provide a measure of privacy while ensuring the most restful sleep for your relief team in the aftermath of a hurricane or tropical storm. Finally, food and potable water can be served up to your workers and to those in need from a rented trailer that is equipped with power for refrigeration and cooking needs. This will provide added comfort and support for your team during their relief efforts.
