Hurricane Preparedness Quick Links

St. Petersburg Municipal Marina St. Petersburg Municipal Marina, St. Petersburg
Hurricane preparedness is vital to the operation of a successful marina in Florida. The very active and costly hurricane seasons of 2004 and 2005 are evidence of the importance of being prepared early and for the worst. Boat owners and marina operators, especially those along the coast, should consider hurricane preparation part of normal boat and marina maintenance. Just a few unprepared boats can inflict incredible damage on a marina, as can unsecured facilities and equipment. Marina managers must begin early in developing a formal, orderly written plan.

NOTE: Each marina’s actual procedure, plan and checklist will vary based on size, location, staff and services to name a few.  A hurricane preparedness plan should be based on an individual marina’s specific needs and requirements.
