Jamaicans urged to secure their properties for Hurricane Season before travelling

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppJamaica, August 15, 2017 – Kingston – The Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM) is encouraging persons to take the time to ensure that their properties are protected before travelling, in the event that a tropical cyclone should affect the island.Director of Preparedness and Emergency Management, at the ODPEM, Horace Glaze, tells JIS News that persons should make an assessment and put things in place to prevent any incidents or minimise the event of any such occurring.He states that property owners should create and work from a checklist, especially looking if the properties are susceptible to landslides and wind damage.“If you (live in a) flood-prone (area) you need to put your furniture and other items on raised platforms. If you live in an area where the population is sparse, you may want to let the police know you might be away for an extended period. It’s really about assessing your personal circumstances, what your likely risks and vulnerabilities are and addressing them accordingly,” he says.Mr. Glaze also encourages home and business owners to check for any hazards, which could affect the safety of roofs and windows.“Do a hazard hunt around the home…both externally and internal. You’re not at home… and the (strong) winds might just blow down a tree, which might pull down electric service wires. Plug out all unnecessary electrical (equipment), you’re less likely to have a fire at home as a result,” he informs.He adds that trees should be pruned to prevent structural damage, in the event that a tree falls.   “If you’re doubtful of the structure and you need to do the necessary ‘tie downs’, do that. If you have shutters in place, pull them down to prevent glass from breaking.  Some persons will be concerned about flooding, some persons about landslides while others may be concerned about wind damage,” he notesOn the matter of placing concrete blocks and heavy stones on roofs, Mr. Glaze says persons should fix their roofs, using the proper roof screws, as ‘roof weights’ could pose a serious problem, in the event of a hurricane, especially for neighbours.He further encourages persons to seek the guidance of their local artisans and carpenters on how to properly strap down roofs, as simply placing heavy objects on the roof is not enough.Meanwhile, the ODPEM Director notes that often pets are forgotten and adequate preparations are not made to protect them.He advises that plans must be put in place to relocate pets from a house or an establishment, to a place where they can be housed to ride out the storm.Mr. Glaze reiterates that steps must always be taken by persons to have their properties monitored either by a neighbour, family or other source, to ensure some level of security and protection during or after the adverse weather.

Attack launched at behest of govts highups BNP

first_imgRuhul Kabir RizviBlaming the ruling party for the attack on its secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir’s motorcade in Chittagong, BNP on Monday alleged that terrorists get inspired when “protection and incitement come from the country’s the most powerful person”.Speaking at a press conference at the party’s BNP’s Naya Paltan central office, BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi Ahmed also accused the government’s high-ups of giving instruction to attack Fakhrul’s motorcade, reports.”Those who can travel abroad leaving helpless disaster-affected people can do anything bad. People have seen a new and desperate form of terrorism of the government, the way the ruling party men attacked BNP secretary general’s motorcade on his way to Rangamati with relief materials,” he said.The BNP leader further said, “We strongly believe that the heinous attack was made at the behest of Awami League government’s high-ups.”On Sunday, Mirza Fakhrul and some other party senior leaders were injured as local Awami League supporters allegedly attacked his motorcade at Isakhali in Rangunia upazila, Chittagong on their way to landslides-hit Rangamati.Rizvi Ahmed alleged that police arrested their party men at different parts of the country, including in the capital, on Sunday as they took out processions protesting the attack on their leaders. “We strongly condemn it.”He also alleged that the ruling party men attacked their party’s iftar programmes in Moulvibazar and Netrakona, and foiled those on Sunday. “They have resorted to hooliganism fearing their fall anytime. They’re making desperate efforts to establish a reign of terror after getting alienated from people.”The BNP leader said the way the terrorism is being reproduced it can easily be assumed that the next election will witness huge violence if it is held under Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.He also warned that BNP will boycott the next election as well if it is held under the Awami League-led government.Read more:‘Attack an arrogant bid of govt to erase last sign of democracy’BNP to stage countrywide demo tomorrowMirza Fakhrul’s motorcade comes under attack in Ctglast_img read more
