The Nevis Disaster Management Department (NDMD) is expecting participation on Nevis in CaribWave 2019 to exceed that of 2018, when the annual tsunami readiness exercise is carried out throughout the region between 10:05 a.m. to midday on March 14, 2019.Mr. Brian Dyer, Director of the NDMD, spoke of the expected increase participation when during an interview with the Department of Information recently, ahead of the staged exercise with the Caribbean.
“Last year’s exercise we saw 1,800 persons taking part. This year we are trying to get over 2,000 persons to participate in this exercise. So it is important for us to get the word out and to get persons involved in practising the evacuation processes in the event of an actual event occurring.
