Speaking at a press conference at the Ministry of National Security’s office in Port-of-Spain yesterday, relief officer with the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management Captain Neville Wint said while all State responders were mobilised and prepared for any eventuality caused by the weather condition, relief may be slower for people living in rural communities.
"The 72 hour protocol is an international standard where we ask members of the public to sustain themselves for that period in the aftermath of a disaster.
"Based on the impact it would take time for resources, personnel and equipment to move into position to assess damage," Wint said.
Slower response for rural areas says ODPM official
