Hurricane Plan:                                 Hurricane Letter
When a hurricane threatens the keys
    We prep the base for heavy weather according to the hurricane plan.
    People designated as core cadre stay and take care of the immediate needs of the base and our mission.
    Everyone else evacuates to Orlando (mandatory for active duty, highly encouraged for dependents)
        The communication for an evacuation is based on phone tree system.  POC's for each division/department keep track of the remaining people and pass the word from the Evacuation Officer (CWO Burns) to evacuees.  In addition there are meetings at a designated spot for passing information.  The Servicing Personnel Unit (SPO) continues to operate at that same hotel to provide travel services (travelers checks/orders etc) along with the Hurricane Evacuation Assistance Team (HEAT).  Orlando is located in the middle of the state with a large supply of safe havens (Stout Hotels).  The availability of information, services, and a safe berthing are the reasons why Sector evacuates to Orlando.
    After the storm evacuee's return, fill out travel claims and commence cleanup, repair and operations.
