JTWC will not be conducting a continuity of operations plan (COOP) because it will cause major disruption to operations and mission. JTWC has reviewed its COOP procedures and conducted a COOP to Fleet Weather Center Norfolk prior to exercise due to the Tropical Cyclone Conference in March. All simulations will be overseen by the Command Duty Officer to ensure that necessary actions could be taken if the occasion arose. JTWC has reviewed its Emergency Action Plan (EAP) and feels fully prepared for this year’s hurricane season.
