ACE Marine Facilities Group Offers New Hurricane Emergency Checklist for Marina & Yacht Club Owners

With the hurricane season upon us, and experts at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicting between 9 to 15 named storms this year,1 it’s important for marina and yacht club owners to realize that a well thought-out emergency action plan can significantly reduce damage and assist in a rapid recovery.

ACE Marine Facilities Group, part of ACE Commercial Marine, has just released its Hurricane Emergency Checklist, which is designed for marina and yacht club owners and operators in high-risk hurricane and wind storm areas. It’s important to be prepared, because according to NOAA, this year there’s a 70 percent chance that 4 to 8 named storms may develop into hurricanes, while 1 to 3 could become Category 3 or stronger.2 The entire marina community is advised to consider this checklist to create a comprehensive emergency plan long before the actual threat of hurricane landfall.

“ACE Marine Advisory Services’ specialists provide critical steps to take before, during and after a major storm that can help to minimize damage,” said Kim Finlay, Assistant Vice President, ACE USA Marine Facilities Group. “This tool provides critical checkpoints for protecting marine facilities and employees, as well as stored and owned vessels. Helping our marine clients as they create or update their hurricane preparation and response plans is part of our commitment to serving the marine community.”
