Disaster plan for province

Jone Kalouniviti
Thursday, February 27, 2014

THEIR experience of Cyclone Evan in 2012 has prompted the people of Ra to produce their own disaster management plans with the assistance of the authorities.

Ra provincial administrator Kelepi Kubunameca said this was the positive change he had noticed in the province in the past year.

"This has been one of the most pleasing things for me personally because now we know they take these things more seriously," Mr Kubunameca said.

In the past month, villages had submitted their own disaster management plans to the provincial office.

These plans showed how they would react to the situation of a natural disaster.

"This, I believe, has come about due to past experiences and particularly Cyclone Evan,"he said.

The plans covered what the villages would do prior to, during and after a natural disaster.

"The fact they have each produced this means much thought has been put into the process in consultation with NGOs and government authorities," Mr Kubunameca said.
