NaDMA To Conduct Orientation For District Coordinators And Deputies, Monday, May 15th, 2023

PR – The National Disaster Management Agency (NaDMA) will conduct an orientation for  its newly elected District Coordinators and Deputy District Coordinators. The three hour session is scheduled for Monday, May 15th, 2023, from 2:00 p.m., at the NaDMA  conference room, Morne Jaloux, St. George’s.  

During the period February to April 2023, NaDMA conducted elections in all  seventeen districts in Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. The newly elected  District Coordinators and Deputy District Coordinators will be engaged in an  interactive session that will provide a detailed overview of their roles and  responsibilities at the district, and an outline of the organizational structure of NaDMA  and its functions. The orientation will also include a practical component on  emergency communications. 

The objective of the orientation is to provide the leaders of the District Committees  with the tools necessary for them to deliver effective leadership and to ensure that  district teams are prepared to respond to hazards. NaDMA recognizes that a robust  district structure is a critical element in the Disaster Management process, as the  district committees form an important link to the national structure.
