NEMA to make federation one of the first tsunami-ready Caribbean countries

The National Emergency Management Agency is working to ensure that when a tsunami hits, the country is prepared.

Deputy National Disaster Coordinator at NEMA Claricia Langley-Stevens says NEMA intends to make the Federation a leader in tsunami readiness.

“NEMA is presently engaged in consultations to have St. Kitts and Nevis be one of the first tsunami ready countries in the Caribbean. That would include identifying assembly points, evacuation routes to these assembly points and to have government approved inundation evacuation maps for both St. Kitts and Nevis,” she said.

NEMA tested some of the preparedness techniques on Thursday during a Tsunami Readiness Disaster Drill.
