Atlantic Ocean hurricane season is an ongoing event, beginning June 1 and ending on November 30. Now is a good time for digital billboard owners to make some decisions and complete preparations.
During hurricane season is a good time to decide to either power down the display(s) or keep them running to alert people about:
- Weather conditions.
- Evacuation routes.
- Safety announcements.
Digital billboard owners want to continue the industry’s legacy of serving the public. But you also need to weigh the benefits of turning the display off. Now’s a good time to decide what’s best for your location(s).
We’ve put together a guide to help you, Daktronics Digital Hurricane Preparation Procedure. It contains how to create a priority spreadsheet, hurricane preparation for displays both with and without SmartLink™ and a startup procedure for after the hurricane.
