A wind action plan is a set strategy for how to handle certain wind-speed actions during an event. An example of this could be that an engineer has determined that all fabrics must begin to be taken down from the temporary structure once wind-speed has hit 30 miles per hour.
Before the event begins, the wind action plan should be discussed with all members involved. This way, it can be established just how long each procedure will take and a timeline can be drawn up. Then in the event that a severe storm does begin to make its way towards your venue, each component of the wind action plan can be completed in a timely manner, well before the storm actually hits.
Plans such as this help to ensure, not only that your event goes off without a hitch, but also that your guests are safe from the bending, twisting or collapsing of any loose structures. Be sure that your engineer has a wind action plan set in place before beginning any event and rest easy knowing that if the weather does take a turn of the worse, you’ll know what to do!
