    Manager of NDMO Lester Blackett (r) and Director of Information in the Nevis Island Administration, Huey Sargeant
    Charlestown Nevis (September 26, 2006)
    Manager of the Nevis Disaster Management Office (NDMO), Lester Blackett and Nevis Island Administration Director of Information & Public Information Officer with the Nevis Disaster Management Committee, Huey Sargeant are attending a three-day Forum entitled 'Using Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for effective Disaster Management'. 

    The forum which takes place from September 26th to 29th, 2006 focuses on the various communication technologies such as telecommunications, broadcasting (radio and television), and information technology such as the internet in managing the information associated with Disaster Management.

    It has been acknowledged that information surrounding disasters was available.  However, there is great difficulty when information has to reach the persons in a timely manner for it to be effective.
    Disaster Management recognized that many disasters cannot be prevented.  Therefore, it strives to minimize human suffering and according to all of the speakers at the end of the first day's session, getting information to the relevant persons and agencies was critical in achieving the goal.
    Earlier today, (the first day of the forum), Director of the NDMO Lester Blackett co-chaired a panel discussion which addressed Information and Communication Technology Deployment for Disaster Mitigation, ICT Legislation and the Regulators Responsibility in Disaster Management.
    Participants of the Disaster Management Forum
    The Nevis Disaster committee saw the participation in the forum as critical in helping the people of Nevis be more aware of the risks related to disasters and to be in a position to respond and to recover in the fastest possible time with minimal human suffering and impacts to infrastructure. 

    The forum is sponsored by the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation and the International Telecommunication Union and coordinated by the Office of Utilities Regulation in Jamaica.
