Notice Board 15/03/2017

On Tuesday, 21 March 2017 the Cayman Islands will join other localities in the Caribbean as a participant in an annual tsunami response exercise called the CARIBE WAVE 17. The purpose of the exercise is to evaluate local tsunami response plans, increase tsunami preparedness and improve coordination throughout the region. The exercise will include a public notification via text message.

All FLOW and Digicel customers will receive a text message at 9:10 a.m. on Tuesday that reads: “MESSAGE ALERT: This is a test of the Emergency Notification System for the 2017 Tsunami Exercise. THIS IS ONLY A TEST.”

Once the exercise is complete a final text will follow with a survey link. Hazard Management asks the public to please take the online survey to evaluate the success of the excise.
