Barbados, February 3, 2006 (CDERA) Emergency relief personnel will attend a two-day Warehouse Management Workshop being facilitated by Caribbean Disaster Emergency Response Agency (CDERA) and the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) in Saint Lucia.
Participants will be trained in the principles and procedures of warehouse management including storage procedures, stock management, preservation and packaging and material handling equipment requirements.
The Course is being conducted in all of CDERA 16 Participating States within the context of the Model Integrated Relief Programme which focuses on the development of a policy, plan and procedures for managing relief supplies.
The end result is to have a cadre of trained emergency relief personnel in each country capable of meeting the challenges generally associated with managing the receipt, storage and distribution of relief supplies.
The Warehouse Management Course is also part of a wider EC$8 million (US$3 million) Land-based Search and Rescue Project being implemented by CDERA which seeks to develop, by March 2006, enhanced search and rescue infrastructure at the national and regional levels as well as provide training in search and rescue techniques.
The Project is funded by the Government of Japan through the United Nations Trust Fund for Human Security which is managed by the United Nations Development Programme.
This workshop begins February 6 at the Bay Gardens Hotel.
