Turks and Caicos launches HPW 2015 with ‘Keep Calm’ theme

Providenciales, 01 Jun 2015 – Hurricane Preparedness Week or HPW 2015 was launched this morning at the Gus Lightbourne Gym by Minister George Lightbourne and the Department of Disaster Management and Emergencies. The goal explains DDME is to increase awareness of the dangers and hazards of hurricanes; ensure we all realize that simply being aware is not being prepared and that residents realize that by knowing their vulnerabilities and what actions to take, they can reduce the effects and impacts of a hurricane disaster. The theme for HPW 2015 is ‘Keep Calm and Be Prepared’ and does double duty for awareness and action to actually get homes and work places ready in the event of a storm. Hurricane season runs June 1-November 30.
