Trinidad and Tobago: National earthquake plan

The purpose of this plan is to minimize the loss of life and damage to property and the environment in Trinidad and Tobago by detailing actions to be taken to mitigate against, prepare for, respond effectively to and recover quickly from, the impacts of major earthquakes and consequent tsunamis. 

This Plan is promulgated under the general direction of the Minister of National Security. There are, however, several pieces of legislation that have dealt with matters related to disaster management. Chief among these are:

  • The Disaster Measures Act No. 1978 (Under revision)
  • The Municipal Corporations Act No. 21 of 1990
  • The Fire Service Act
  • Environmental Management Act 2000
