Preparing for Sandy

With Hurricane Sandy getting ready to bear down on the East Coast of the United States, communities up and down the coast are beginning their disaster preparations.  The links below on this page will take you to disaster preparation organizations' websites that will contain helpful information on preparing for a disaster.  Remember go bags, have enough water, batteries, etc.  For businesses, have your emergency call numbers and lists ready for Monday and Tuesday.  Off site facilities for computer operations should be readied.

The idea of disaster preparation is to be prepared and hopefully not have to use the preparation materials and techniques.  Special preparation is needed in this case because of the confluence of three weather systems at the same time making for the potential of a "perfect storm."  Charge up your cell phones and other communication devices on Sunday night.  Have your emergency radio ready to listen Monday morning on status of transportation and power.

The ABA's Tort, Trial & Insurance Practice Section's Task Force on Disaster Preparedness and Response wishes everyone a safe harbor in this upcoming storm.
