Situational Awareness in the Caribbean
Updated: Feb 19
BUDMC delivers virtual workshop to Caribbean countries to help improve Situational Awareness.
Whilst the Covid-19 pandemic kept borders closed and travel limited this year. BUDMC successfully delivered several workshops throughout May & June 2020 to Caribbean countries designed to develop Situational Awareness ahead of the annual hurricane season. With countries facing the dual hazard of managing hurricane response during a Covid-19 environment the BUDMC team worked with colleagues across the Caribbean to explore options for enhancing Situational Awareness in a quick and cost effective manner. This was supported by delivery of a virtual exercise allowing workshop participants to explore solutions for a variety of issues including; communications, safety and security, health emergency response, shelter management and public utilities.
