Hurricane Preparedness Guide

To support preparedness and mitigation activities across Trinidad and Tobago, the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management (ODPM) has developed a Wet/Hurricane Season Preparedness eGuide. 

Preparation and planning will make a significant difference in being safe. Individuals, families and organisational processes require a disciplined focus on preparedness, planning, and networking with families, friends, and the community. You should take action now to increase your preparedness and participate in community resilience planning.

This 2019 Hurricane Guide provides you with the information and resources to support your preparedness efforts.   Everyone has a role to play in preparing for a hurricane, storm, severe weather and flood impact.  All employers and organisations— from government ministries, businesses, faith and community-based organisations and individuals are essential components of the nation’s response to any hazard impact and can help people and groups to be more prepared.

You are responsible for planning and protecting your staff, yourself,

family and facilities. Remember, disasters don't plan ahead

— but you can, and now's the time to do it.

Let's Get Ready and Stay Ready!
