Cyclone Contingency Procedure

KPA’s Cyclone Contingency Procedure provides guidance on the expected response of Port of Broome staff, and vessel crews in port during the approach and onset of a cyclonic or severe weather event.

The Cyclone Contingency Procedure is reviewed by the Harbour Master prior to the cyclone season (November to April) each year and updated to reflect changes necessitated by ‘lessons learnt’ from previous cyclone seasons or by changes to the Port’s infrastructure or operational practices.

Port users are invited to raise proposed changes to the procedure with the Harbour Master.

Any discrepancies or conflicts identified between this procedure and other port advice should be brought to the attention of the Harbour Master.
