“The focus will be placed on looking at all the threats. We should be able to deal with all those strikes that come our way. We know our preparations are largely limited to hurricanes and sometimes not the biggest of those. Therefore, we are promoting an all hazards approach; we must be ready for even a tsunami which can be very devastating,” said Jeremy Collymore, Executive Director of The Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency, as reported the Barbados Advocate. He was talking at the third meeting of the Technical Advisory Committee where the committee had also agreed to endorse a Model Comprehensive Disaster Management Policy.
