UNITED CARIBBEAN TRUST- Family Emergency Plan

It's important to note that our country is situated in a region exposed to various hazards, in other words we are surrounded by potential danger.

This should not prevent us from living normal and quiet lives on the contrary we should adopt ways and attitudes to change our normal living habits... This is why we will be better prepared when an emergency occurs or better still avoid hazards or reduce their effects.

 

The best starting point is to begin to organise ourselves in our own family...and we achieve this with the participation of all family members by creating a Family Emergency Pl;an the following pages have been created to assist.

 

1. FAMILIARIZE OURSELVES WITH OUR SURROUNDINGS

When we spend a long time in the same place it becomes so familiar that there are details and things which we do not notice.

The type of house, living conditions and where the house is constructed are factors which determine the type of vulnerability and risk.

For this reason it would be advisable to check the area and conditions in which we live,taking into account the following.

TYPE OF HOUSING

Galvanised sheets, this house in Guyana housed a single mother and three children, affected by the floods in January 3005
Plywood with galvanised roof affected by hurricane Ivan in Carriacou

Wooden house in Grenada
