IMI to host webinar on how Florida marinas survived Irma

The International Marina Institute will host a webinar entitled What Contributed to the Success of Southeast Florida Marinas During Hurricane Irma. Carl Wolf, an IMI instructor and longtime marina consultant, will discuss key findings at marinas he visited in the days after the storm hit Southeast Florida last September.

The webinar, which will be held Wednesday September 5 from noon to 1 p.m. EST, is part of a three-month series on hurricane-related topics, including tools you can use for forecasting, what contributed to the success of some marinas and essentials to include in a hurricane recovery plan.

The first webinar was held the first of this month and there will be a third in October. Interested parties can register here.
