Hotels/Motels/ R.V. Parks/Transient Accommodation Facilities:
Four hurricanes that hit the state in 2004 cost Floridians an estimated $20 billion in property damage. Hotel/Motel owners in Pinellas County must have an emergency plan in place to not be in violation of the ordinance 90-87. If you don't have an emergency response plan in place, a $500 fine can be levied from the Pinellas County Department of Emergency Management.
If a major storm approaches the Pinellas County coast...
That depends on how well the property owners have planned and if they have an emergency plan in place before the storms hits their property.
Having and practicing a business emergency response plan can provide the answers to the 'who’s in charge' question and give direction to your entire staff concerning what their responsibilities are.
