Hurricane Ian: Emergency response CEO shares first-hand tale
“When [a storm hits] on the mainland, there are safe zones to pre-posture in. You can get very close with your assets and refuel and house people within a few hours [travel time] of the disaster zone.”
In an Insurance Business America article, CEO Dale Buckner shares how Global Guardian phased its response to Hurricane Ian, first by pre-positioning assets and agents in the area and alerting clients, then by conducting high-water rescue missions. Post-storm, the firm pivoted to supporting clients with damage assessments, onsite security to deter looting, and health and welfare checks.
