As part of our Return to Travel series, this week we are sharing an extensive collection of mitigation measures to apply in a variety of travel situations. As travel increases, travel disruptions such as civil unrest, crime, terrorism, and natural disasters are returning to the forefront of concerns being reported and tracked. Remaining informed and situationally aware cannot be stressed enough, and whether you are heading across town, cross-country, or out of the country, we encourage you to equip yourself with updated information as a first step for any travel.
Today's Focus - Mitigating Measures to Apply for Natural Disasters and Severe Weather:
Check with your destination workplace and accommodations to ensure they are open and operating
Monitor local news and weather media for updates
Allow extra time for travel to/from your workplace, accommodations, and airport
Avoid traveling through flooded areas
Keep extra bottled water in lodging
Keep electronics charged and maintain contact throughout the remainder of the trip
Confirm flight itinerary prior to departure to the airport
Prepare for other disruptions to travel such as heavy rainfall could lead to landslides, mudslides and flooding, dangerous river levels, coastal surges, strong winds, downed trees which may hinder rescue/recovery efforts, traffic delays, and power outages in homes and places of work
Identify evacuation routes and procedures, shelter locations, and local signage
