The Community Alerts Project (CAP) is well on its way in the town of Portsmouth. The resounding initial response of the schools, business and community leaders suggests that the people of Portsmouth are supportive of this initiative.
The outreach and education component of the project was launched on September 1, 2014 and is scheduled to run until December 31, 2014. This pilot project is funded by DIPECHO and implemented by the UNDP Barbados and the OECS, in collaboration with the Office of Disaster Management (ODM) in Dominica. The project is also being implemented simultaneously in St. Vincent and Grenada. The project aims to improve community alerting and awareness on natural hazards, and the associated preparation and response protocols. This project will ultimately lead to the formation of the Dominica Alert System (DAS). It is anticipated that the experiences and best practices garnered in Portsmouth will be replicated in other coastal communities in Dominica.
