For SWA Employees

All employees should be working their regular schedules.

Hurricane Season starts June 1. Do your part to be ready - stock up on hurricane supplies, prepare your Go Kit should you need to evacuate, and trim back your vegetation so post-storm clean up can be faster.
Don't forget to follow the SWA's social media pages to get storm updates:
