March 25, 2019
As I write this, spring is just around the corner. You would think that the cold, winter months are the not-so-busy-time for SEA’s shore facilities coordinator. On the contrary! I may not be out and about as much, but my days are filled with planning and coordinating our much-needed springtime maintenance activities. I’m fortunate this year to have a six-week window of opportunity to get some larger improvement projects done that would otherwise interrupt student life here on campus.

We are busy preparing for what an upcoming winter storm is expected to bring to the Cape & Islands this weekend. For nearly 45 years and over one million nautical miles, SEA has thoughtfully and continuously honed its safety policies and procedures to minimize risk. We operate under a philosophy of prevention but prepare for and are capable of a broad spectrum of response.
