ODPEM's Annual Disaster Preparedness Exposition 2017
Roye’s Plaza in Junction, St. Elizabeth came alive on Saturday, June 24, 2017, as the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management’s (ODPEM’s) Annual Disaster Preparedness Exposition was held. The St. Catherine Municipal Corporation's Disaster Preparedness team was among the participants.
According to St. Catherine’s Disaster Coordinator Ms. Patricia Lewis, St. Catherine has always welcomed this annual event and from time to time made the effort to attend wherever it is held. She said it is an event that has also opened an entire avenue for sharing of general information relating to the parish and there were several things on display. The highlight however, was on Disaster Preparedness matters.
St. Catherine team members participated in several activities and won prizes. The team is happy to have been able to share in what was considered a very informative and meaningful event, and looks forward to next year, Ms. Lewis said.
