While responding to the COVID-19 pandemic remains our nation’s primary focus, we must also remember it’s hurricane season. The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30, with the peak occurring between mid-August and late October.
To ensure employees are ready to respond to a hurricane or severe storm, the Renew Employee Wellness Program has a series of Hurricane Preparedness workshops in partnership with the Fire Department: Emergency Management Division, in addition to presenting the Virginia Hurricane Evacuation Guide created by the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM). This updated guide places a special emphasis on preparedness during the pandemic.
