Sunday, January 23, 2005 - The Office of the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) continues to collaborate with fellow disaster offices in the region to have the Caribbean prepared for all contingencies.

During the last two weeks of January, the Director of NEMO in collaboration with the Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) will be conducting two training workshops in Damage Assessment and Needs Analysis (DANA) for The National Emergency Planning Organisation (NEPO) of Dominica and the National Emergency Management Organisation [NEMO] of St Vincent and the Grenadines.

As with Saint Lucia's NEMO, these Secretariats are charged with ensuring that the population is prepared for a disaster. The training will cover areas, such as Teamwork, Data Gathering, Analyzing and Interpreting Needs, Establishing Priorities and The Way Forward.

OFDA is the office within USAID responsible for providing non-food humanitarian assistance in response to international crises and disasters.
