ODPM to train residents in disaster preparation

Residents of several communities are being invited to learn how to weather the storm, as the ODPM celebrates the International Day for Disaster Reduction.

The UN Day will be observed tomorrow but in a release sent today, the ODPM says it will have a pilot program on Saturday.

They will visit Diego Martin, Sangre Grande and St. Helena and teach residents how to build proper sandbag walls, the safety procedures when using a chainsaw and GIS mapping of shelters, as well as how to plot evacuation routes.

In 2017 the focus of the International Day for Disaster Reduction is on reducing the number of people affected by disasters by 2030.
