American Logistics Aid Network Readies For Dorian

American Logistics Aid Network Urges Precautions, Preparation For Hurricane Dorian

As Hurricane Dorian heads toward the mainland U.S., the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN), a TMSA Affiliate member, is urging residents of Florida, the Gulf Coast and other parts of the Southeast to start preparing – and advising the logistics community to get ready to help. TMSA members are encouraged to support the efforts of ALAN, which also is a TMSA member. 

“The strength and path projections for Dorian are still very uncertain, but do suggest that it could be a destructive and dangerous event for Florida and potentially all of the Southeast and Gulf Coast,” said Kathy Fulton, ALAN’s Executive Director. “As a result, ALAN is officially mobilizing and gearing up to provide donated space, trucking, services and equipment as needed.” 

ALAN has activated a Hurricane Dorian Micro-site, where the humanitarian organization will be posting requests for assistance and links to helpful community resources. In addition, it has issued an official “STORM” advisory that provides several do’s and don’ts for safe and efficient disaster preparation and relief. 

As always, Fulton said that ALAN hopes these measures will prove to be merely precautionary. 

“During our 14 years of operation, we’ve seen some potentially catastrophic hurricanes that have turned into relatively minor events while others have morphed into far more major events than originally anticipated,” she said. “Obviously, we hope Dorian will turn out to be the former. However if it isn’t, we want people to remember that we are here to assist – and that when it comes to these storms, there’s no such thing as too ready.”
