Disaster Emergency Organisation meeting for St. Michael North West at the St. Stephans Church Hall on 19th May 2010
Wednesday, 19 May 2010 00:00
“The District Emergency Organisation operates as the volunteer arm of the Department of Emergency Management, the agency responsible for the National Emergency Management System. The role of the DEO's is to organize and coordinate the resources of the community so as to allow for an effective response in time of crisis. The DEO works with the community to develop and operationalise disaster prevention and disaster preparedness programmes to lessen the impact of identified hazards such as hurricane, flood and earthquake, fire, aircraft and vehicular accidents and is also becoming more and more involved in the fight against environmental hazards such as love vine and the Giant African Snail.

The DEO reaches out to all groups in the community, including churches, service clubs, neighborhood watches, PTAs, skilled artisans, families, community groups, non-governmental organisation and most importantly the individuals living in the community. There is also a close association with the government agencies such as the Fire Service and the Police that operate in the respective communities.” Read more http://www.dem.gov.bb/pages/deo.html
