Monday, February 28, 2005 - The National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) has urged the Secretariat of the Pitons Management Area (PMA) to have a disaster management plan in place for the Area.

In a letter in February to the secretariat, the Director of NEMO pointed out that such a plan would embrace Comprehensive Disaster Management, a strategy that has been adopted by the Caribbean, including Saint Lucia.

Comprehensive Disaster Management [CDM] was conceptualized by the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Response Agency [CDERA] as a new direction for disaster management for the 21st century.

According to NEMO’s Director Dawn French, with the inscription of the Pitons as a World Heritage Site, the role of caretaker has taken on Global significance.

Hazard analysis and experience have confirmed that Saint Lucia is at risk from numerous hazards, both natural and technological.
