How do I establish an effective Hurricane and Flood Plan for my company?

I'm an intern for GKN Aerospace New England Inc, working in one of their smallest branches in Manchester, CT. I know there's little risk of a DEADLY hurricane or flood in this part of Connecticut, but because of the implementation of new safety standards (and because my boss ran out of jobs to give me) I've been asked to make Hurricane and Flood "Emergency Action Plans" Where's a good place to start? Any advice from a professional would be GREAT. I'm fully capable of researching on my own, and this is part of that research, but I want to know what guidelines to follow. For example, should I make a chart of courses of action for each increasing hurricane category? Update: I've been informed by my boss that even though we don't have a plan he doesn't want to make a new one...judging by your answers so far (which have been a great help) that sounds like a bad idea. Is there such thing as a template for such plans? I don't think this is something I'm capable of doing without cooperation and planning from the rest of the company. HELP! lol
