The representatives discussed where the ESFs are at with regards to the plans and procedures in case of a hurricane. The meeting served to provide a status update of the key players in the ESFs.

Island Governor and Head of the EOC Jonathan Johnson called on people to get ready for the nearing hurricane season, to be prepared and to have a plan in place. He said that while predictions for this season varied, it took only one to cause damage.
