Hurricane Policy

I.A.T.S.E 477 Clarification of Hurricane Policy 

The following rules are in effect for impending hurricanes:

1) Hurricane Watch - A watch is issued when hurricane conditions can be expected within 36 hours.  This is the time for production to begin securing sets and property (especially boats), and to begin the evacuation of barrier islands.  Local 477 members can be requested to assist in such preparation.  Production should begin considering cessation of filming and release of employees, particularly “nearby” hires. 

2) Hurricane Warning - A warning is issued when sustained wind of 74 miles per hour are expected within 24 hours.  Production should have completed hurricane preparation by this time and will begin evacuation.  Production shall cease upon the announcement of a hurricane warning in the respective area, and Local 477 members shall be released during Hurricane Warning periods.
