Disaster preparedness lessons from Hurricane Sandy
Omnilert, LLC, has released results from a post-event survey featuring insights and lessons learned after Hurricane Sandy. The survey respondents represented schools, businesses, non-profits, and government agencies from the company's Amerilert and e2Campusservices. The online survey was conducted between November 2nd – 15th, 2012, with a sample of 164 respondents.
Key lessons learned
Where Sandy struck, the numbers of people affected tended to be large. Of the customers who told us they were impacted by the storm, about half (50.6 percent) had more than 1,000 people affected and 17.7 percent had 5,000 or more of their people affected. The most serious lingering disruptions were caused by flooding, water leaks, and extended power outages.
