HURRIPLAN in Post-Sandy South NJ

Dean Sakamoto, Don Watson and Dennis Hwang deliver HURRIPLAN: Resilient Building Design For Coastal Communities to state and local officials, planning and design professionals in Tuckerton, New Jersey. This two-day event is being held at the Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve with over forty participants on January 8-9. Sakamoto developed HURRIPLAN, a FEMA certified training program for the National Disaster Preparedness Training Center (NDPTC) at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Since 2012, HURRIPLAN has been offered to hurricane-prone communities nation-wide. The seaside towns of Tuckerton and Little Egg Harbor were significantly impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
