The National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) will be releasing a ‘Know the Tsunami Warning Signs Video’ today November 5, 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 UN General Assembly designated November 5 as the annual day for spotlighting tsunami risk. This worldwide event is supported by the Government of Japan, and is used as an opportunity to showcase good practices related to Tsunami.
Through this project, NEMO is working with six schools including; 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.
