ODPM is Toying with the idea of making the ODPM first responder

odpm logo Chief Executive officer of the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management, Dr Stephen Ramroop is toying with the idea of making the ODPM the first responder….

Speaking at the opening of a three day workshop on disaster management in collaboration with the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency, he explained more than often the ODPM is contacted before any other agency…

Dr. Ramroop believes this move will do well in ensuring proper monitoring of disaster management around the country, as well as work as a channel for proper monitoring of strengths and weaknesses of the overall management structure.

Dr. Ramroop also issued a challenge to the media to become more proactive in disseminating information on disaster management, rather than just report on incidents.
