The National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) will release a ‘Know the Tsunami Warning Signs Video’ on Monday 5th November, 2018 to commemorate “World Tsunami Awareness Day.” This video was produced locally by NEMO in collaboration with a number of popular local Soca Artistes, through funding from the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) under the Country Directed Fund (CDF).
The National Emergency Management Organisation will also launch an exhibition at the Car Park next to the Postal Corporation Building in Kingstown on Monday 5th November, 2018 at 8:00 a.m. The main purpose of this exhibition is to heighten awareness on tsunami and other geological hazards such as landslides, earthquakes and volcanic eruption.
The National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) is currently involved in a Tsunami SMART Schools and Communities Project in collaboration with the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA), the Ministry of Education and the Seismic Research Centre (SRC) with funding from the European Union through CDEMA’s Country Directed Fund.
Through this project, the National Emergency Management Organisation is working with six schools (The Kingstown Anglican School, Clare Valley Government School, Colonaire Primary School, Union Island Secondary School, Mary Hutchinson Primary School and Stephanie Browne Government School) to develop Tsunami Evacuation Plans.
