CDEMA Staff evacuates building during Exercise Shake-UpBridgetown, Barbados, November 27, 2009 (CDEMA) - Staff at the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (formerly CDERA) could be seen taking cover under desks and holding on during an earthquake exercise conducted today (November 27) at the Coordinating Unit in Barbados.

Andria Grosvenor, CDEMA, Programme Manager (Ag.) said, “ Exercise Shake-up” had a twofold purpose, to commemorate the November 2007 Caribbean Earthquake which was a strong reminder of the region’s exposure to the threat of earthquakes and for the Staff of CDEMA to practise safety actions and procedures during an earthquake event.”

“The earthquake of November 29, 2007 was experienced by thousands in twelve of the CDEMA Participating States and has increased the awareness of the hazard in States where many people believed that they were safe from earthquakes. We hope that countries across the region will observe this event annually on the last Friday of November to promote earthquake awareness and safety,” she added
