NEMO preparing for the 2023 hurricane season

In preparation for the 2023 hurricane season, the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) in collaboration with the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) and the World Food Programme (WFP) has been conducting a four day training workshop on the use of the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency‘s Logistics Support System (CLS) which ends today, May 12.

The workshop aims to train a cadre of persons in the use of this Regional Logistics Support System and to build capacity at the national level to support relief efforts in response to emergencies, a release from NEMO states.

The workshop has targetted persons who were actively involved in the NEMOs humanitarian relief efforts following the explosive eruptions of La Soufriere volcano in 2021, and persons who are involved in the day-to-day management of warehouses. The Atlantic hurricane season begins on June 1 each year.
