  1. 2. COORDINATED PLANNING <ul><li>Georgia Emergency Management Agency </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Georgia Emergency Operations Plan (GEOP) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Georgia Hurricane Plan </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>State Operations Center (SOC) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Chatham County Emergency Management Agency </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Chatham Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Chatham Hurricane Plan </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Local Emergency Operations Center (EOC) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Local Emergency Responders </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Standard Operating Procedures </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>EOC Staffing and Support </li></ul></ul></ul>
  2. 3. TIMING OF DECISIONS <ul><li>Initiation of Local Actions Based on Arrival of Tropical Storm Force Winds NOT the Storm’s Center of Circulation </li></ul><ul><li>Current Position, Size of Storm and Forward Moving Speed are the Foundation Figures Required to Begin Time Calculations </li></ul><ul><li>Reverse Planning Based on These Numbers with Consideration Given to a Variety of Different Variables and “What-If” Scenarios </li></ul>
  3. 4. POINTS OF MEASURE TROPICAL STORM Watch – Winds Anticipated in 48 hours Warning – Winds Anticipated in 36 Hours HURRICANE Watch – Winds Anticipated in 48 hours Warning – Winds Anticipated in 36 Hours
  4. 5. VARIABLES <ul><li>Weather and Storm Dynamics </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Current and Forecast </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Strength and Size </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Forward Speed and Water Temperature </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Position of Forecast Track </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Tourist Occupancy and Community Response </li></ul><ul><li>Transportation Network </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Construction and Repairs </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Florida Evacuees </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>I-16 Contra Flow </li></ul></ul></ul>
  5. 6. PROBABILITIES <ul><li>The chance of the center of the storm passing within 65 nautical miles of selected locations. </li></ul><ul><li>Used to assess the threat of a hurricane or tropical storm hitting the community. </li></ul>Forecast Period Maximum Probability 72 hours 10%-15% 48 hours 20%-25% 36 hours 25%-35% 24 hours 40%-50% 12 hours 75%-85%
  6. 7. MARGIN OF ERROR - POSITION <ul><li>Calculation uses a 5-year average. </li></ul><ul><li>Averages graphically displayed as “error cone.” </li></ul>Forecast Period Nautical Mile Allowance 120 hours 285 Radius (570 Diameter) 96 hours 220 Radius (440 Diameter) 72 hours 161 Radius (322 Diameter) 48 hours 108 Radius (216 Diameter) 36 hours 85 Radius (170 Diameter) 24 hours 62 Radius (124 Diameter) 12 hours 36 Radius (72 Diameter)
  7. 8. OPERATING CONDITIONS <ul><li>Operating Conditions (OPCON) establish a time-delineated action-oriented preparedness & response framework. </li></ul><ul><li>OPCONs are intended to present a brief summary of major objectives & actions required to prepare & respond. </li></ul><ul><li>OPCON structure uses timelines that are referenced to the arrival of tropical storm force winds (34 knots / 39 mph) & not the arrival of the hurricane’s center. </li></ul>
  8. 9. OPERATING CONDITIONS <ul><li>OPCON 5 – Normal day-to-day operating level. </li></ul><ul><li>OPCON 4 – TS Winds possible in 120 Hours. </li></ul><ul><li>OPCON 3 – TS Winds possible in 72 Hours. </li></ul><ul><li>OPCON 2 – TS Winds possible in 48 Hours. </li></ul><ul><li>OPCON 1 – TS Winds possible in 24 Hours. </li></ul><ul><li>Time-Delineated, Action-Oriented Preparedness & Response Framework. </li></ul>
