2005 Hurricane Planning in the Southeast United States Conference

Meridian Institute facilitated the 2005 Hurricane Planning in the Southeast United States Conference in April 2005, in Jacksonville, Florida. The conference was a follow-up to the 2004 Hurricane Lessons Learned Conference held in November 2004, in Orlando, Florida, which captured the crucial emergency management lessons of the four Florida hurricanes of the 2004 season.

The 2005 conference was convened by the US Department of Homeland Security’s Infrastructure Partnership Division and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, with the purpose of bringing together federal and state responders, along with industry and other participants, to discuss 2005 activities and plans for responding to future animal and plant health issues that arise during a hurricane or all-hazards emergency. The conference resulted in numerous ideas and insights regarding emergency planning activities, enabling more comprehensive preparation for the 2005 hurricane season.
