June 1 brings the start of hurricane season, and preparation is the key to successfully weathering any storm. At a meeting on May 15, experts presented an overview of UTMB’s hurricane response plan. They shared how decisions are made when a storm enters the Gulf, the outlook for the 2013 season, responsibilities as an individual student or employee, and how the university will communicate  before, during and after a storm. Presentations included:

  • An overview of our incident command structure, by Dr. Joan Richardson, Institutional Emergency Preparedness Officer
