PERSONS IN CARRIACOU & PETITE MARTINIQUE TRAINED IN MASS CAUSUALTY MANAGEMENT
Hillsborough, Carriacou, June 28th, 2010. There is now a cadre of persons in Carriacou and Petite Martinique who can now adequately respond in the event of any disaster. A group of 27 has just participated in a six-day Ministry of Health workshop on mass casualty management.
The workshop, sponsored by the Pan American Health Organization, was facilitated by Jamaican Delwin Ferguson. He said he was happy to share his knowledge with the people of Carriacou and Petite Martinique, adding that he is now confident that if any problem should arise there will be appropriate response.
Mr. Ferguson noted that with the keen interest shown by the participants, there is the possibility of a number of them becoming trainers in mass casualty management.
