Hurricane Ian has Resulted in the American Logistics Aid Network Being Activated

As Hurricane Ian grows stronger, the American Logistics Aid Network urges Florida and Gulf Coast residents to prepare for the worst. Meanwhile, those logistics community members who don’t live near the hurricane’s projected path should be on standby in case assistance is needed.

“Over the next few days Hurricane Ian has the potential to deliver high winds, strong rains and a significant storm surge across many parts of Florida,” Kathy Fulton, ALAN’s Executive Director said “We are mobilizing accordingly.”

Late last week, the disaster relief organization ALAN transitioned into the “preparedness stage” of their storm activation according to Fulton, which includes:
– The Supply Chain Intelligence Center at www.alanaid.org/map not only provides free pre-storm information about the storm’s latest path but also offers critical insights into how the storm might impact your supply chain.

– ALAN is continuously updating its disaster micro-site with resources for those in Hurricane Ian’s path of concern. The site is also where people can turn for specific requests for logistical assistance from ALAN as a result of storm damage.
– Finding out what resources members of the non-profit & disaster relief community anticipate needing.
– To ensure that vital disaster and supply chain information is shared effectively, we work closely with government and industry officials.

If the storm continues as predicted, ALAN’s response relief efforts – including fielding & filling specific requests for logistics help – will begin later this week.
“Most of our requests for assistance arrive after a hurricane or tropical storm has hit,” Fulton said. “That’s because each storm winds up having very different outcomes and pain points. And you really can’t predict what those will be – and where relief organizations will require supply chain assistance the most – until after the storm has moved through.”
