Photo credit: GIS NewsPrime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit is calling preventative measures to be taken during the 2011 hurricane season and beyond.Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit told a recent national emergency planning and disaster meeting in Jimmit that the level of damage caused by natural disasters show that Dominica and the rest of the region are more prepared to act after disasters rather than being prepared ahead of any disaster.Skerrit says a lot of the damage that is done after a hurricane can be avoided if proactive measures are taken.“The question is are we proactive in so far as our preparation is concerned. I have said publicly, when I look at the cost of damage, it is my estimation that about 60% could have been avoided if we had taken action. There are a number of things we can do…” he said.The prime minster says a greater effort needs to be made to curtail the cost which will result from any eventuality, as Government does not have a budget set aside for disasters.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img
