The Port Resiliency Project (PReP) will prepare airports and seaports in Caribbean and Latin America to be more resilient in face of natural disasters by applying lessons learned in Katrina and Haiti. PReP’s focus is on support for essential employees and their families, rapid damage assessment and repair, interagency cooperation, and mutual aid. AmericasRelief Team is initiator. FedEx is biggest sponsor with Miami International Airport, Florida International University, the Port of Miami, AERODOM, American Airlines, and Smith-Woolwine Associates as additional sponsors. PReP uses a four-step process:
  • Phase I: Initial self-assessment by the airport or seaport; risk assessment; and stakeholder identification
  • Phase II: Workshop in Miami to identify gaps and training needs
  • Phase III: Site visit to present targeted training and a table top exercise to assess the preparedness of the airport or seaport
  • Phase IV: Aftercare to track port's actions to improve resiliency and disseminate improvements in PReP
