Holness Pleased with Emergency Storm Response


Prime Minister Andrew Holness is commending the National Emergency Operations Centre for their prompt and efficient response to the threat from Tropical Storm Earl.

In a statement today, Mr. Holness says he feels assured that if Jamaica was to experience another disaster, the team would perform equally good or better.

Director General of the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management, ODPEM, Major Davis, says Cabinet was pleased with how quickly the national disaster response team was able to galvanise itself.

The National Emergency Operations Centre was activated at 6 Monday evening, on the instruction of the Prime Minister.
