Immediate needs and long-term support to help in rebuilding the northern Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian continue to be a high priority for AAPA and its members. Efforts to help people in the Bahamas have included assistance from Georgia Ports Authority, which gathered disaster relief supplies and filled shipping containers; Port Tampa Bay, along with industry partners, that filled eight containers totaling 113,500 pounds of medical supplies and dry good necessities; and The Port of Virginia, which also collaborated to send critical supplies. AAPA is proud of the support its members have provided to disaster stricken port authority personnel and their families in the past, and urges industry colleagues to donate to the AAPA Port Employees Emergency Relief Fund since we anticipate the number of current and future requests for assistance will be significant.
