American Logistics Aid Network Urges Caution and Preparation Ahead of Tropical Storm Barry

As Tropical Storm Barry continues to intensify, the American Logistics Aid Network is urging U.S. Gulf Coast residents to heed local advisories and warnings – and asking logistics and supply chain professionals to be ready to help.

With modern supply chains scaling in size, supply chain risk management (SCRM) needs to be swift and accurate. The American Logistics Aid Network The American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN), a philanthropic, industry-wide organization that provides free logistics assistance to disaster relief organizations before, during and after catastrophic events, this week issued a statement, calling on United States Gulf Coast residents to follow local advisories and warnings­­ - and asking logistics professionals to be at the ready - with Tropical Storm Barry continuing to intensify.

Kathy Fulton, ALAN’s Executive Director, stated;

“There’s already significant flooding in South Louisiana, especially New Orleans, and if Barry continues on its predicted path, it could bring as much as 15 additional inches of rain to the area. As a result, we have good reason to believe this could be the first significant hurricane of the 2019 season.”

Fulton added that ALAN is actively in touch with key partners at local, state, and federal agencies and non-profits, and it is standing by to offer logistics support as needed.

“While there have been no requests for our assistance yet, that situation could quickly change if Barry continues to strengthen and travel on its predicted path,” she said.

“So stay tuned, because if we do receive requests, we’ll try to communicate them quickly via our Disaster Micro-site as well as our Twitter, Facebook and Linked In accounts.”

Logistics businesses that wish to offer their assistance in advance can do so by visiting ALAN’s web site at www.alanaid.org/offer-inkind-services-or-equipment/, while non-profits that require ALAN’s assistance can do so by logging onto www.alanaid.org/request-support/

Meanwhile, Gulf Coast area businesses can get additional information at LA BEOC (for assistance) or the Louisiana Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness GOHSEP (for tips about preparation)

“On a final note, ALAN encourages Gulf Coast residents to follow the advice of local emergency management and law enforcement officials regarding everything from safely evacuating to sheltering in place – and to use the “Turn Around, Don’t Drown” rule when traveling near flooded areas,” said Fulton.

Please contact The American Logistics Aid Network if you can assist.
