Entergy prepares for storm season in weeklong drill
JACKSON, Miss. – To prepare for the upcoming hurricane season, hundreds of Entergy employees across the company’s utility service territory recently took part in an intensive storm drill. The drill tracked a fictional hurricane and its potential impact on Entergy’s service territory.
Following Hurricane Katrina, Entergy adopted the federal and state Incident Command Structure for disasters that clearly defines the roles and responsibilities of the entire storm team. The drill began with a message announcing that a Category 3 hurricane was expected to make landfall that week potentially impacting Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. Participants immediately began responding to the message as if it were a real weather threat.
