NEMO to Host National Workshop - Early Warning Systems

The National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) in collaboration with UNDP Barbados, the OECS and the European Commission Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (DIPECHO) will host a national workshop of the Community Alerts Project, 4th – 5th June, 2014.

NEMO, UNDP Barbados and the OECS are implementing a Community Alerts Project through funding from DIPECHO, to enhance community resilience and demonstrate a coherent approach to emergency alerting. The project will be implemented in the communities of Kingstown, Owia and Union Island in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and communities in Grenada and Dominica.

The Objectives of the project include:

  • Improve awareness to natural hazards and the associated preparation and response protocols in pilot communities;
  • Demonstrate the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) as a process to improve community alerting with a view to wider application within the pilot countries and other Caribbean states.

The workshop will take place at NEMO’S Conference Room, Old Montrose, and will begin at 9:00 a.m. each day.

Additional Information

The workshop follows the mission of the CAP technical expert as well as the Public Awareness specialist and will allow for the provisions of a community-driven choice for the alerting system, and provided feedback towards the final design of the communications strategy, and emergency alerting public awareness products.

The Euro 547,000 (USD734, 000) project will be implemented in six (6) pilot communities in three (3) countries; Dominica, Grenada and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and will come to an end in December 2014.
