Module 3 of the Storm Planning for Urban Forest Books.
Be ready to manage the significant debris from a storm so that roads and emergency services can be cleared and ready to function faster. One critical component of emergency planning is the identification of sites to store, manage and process storm debris. The sheer volume of material generated from extreme weather events can overwhelm communities. A prepared community will identify suitable sites in advance, acquire the appropriate permits and set up necessary infrastructure to be ready when the next storm strikes.
