6. How to Protect Yourself from Electricity Part 1

7. How to Protect Yourself from Electricity Part 2


1. Teachers and Community groups – Teachers interact with a large group of persons who

may be exposed to the possibility of a disaster. Building their capacity to identify threats and

what to do in the event can either avert a disaster or minimise the number of casualties.

2. Principals of Schools – Many schools are used as hurricane shelters and being in an

earthquake belt is also a high-risk area as they house hundreds of students. The ability of the

Head of the school to identify various defects early and adequate maintenance could be done

to ensure that the buildings are in good standing in the event of any of these natural events.

3. Community Disaster Committees – Post disaster these committees are responsible for the

organization and assessment of their communities. In some instances, a community is cut

off and the need for potable water becomes critical. The ability to identify safe water and

how to protect a source becomes critical in such an eventuality.

4. Maintenance Technicians – All buildings have maintenance technicians. The appreciation

for safety as it relates to electricity can never be understated. These persons reside in our

communities and their knowledge of the safety procedures as it relates to disasters can help

in averting another disaster pre and post and event.


1. Better maintained schools - Principal Officers will have the knowledge to identify risks and

make better judgments on the maintenance needs of schools.

2. Safer and more appropriate hurricane shelters.

3. Better prepared Community Disaster Committees resulting in a lower risk of post disaster


4. Built capacity of the communities and schools on how to deal with fire and what should be

done in the event of a fire.

5. Overall safer handling of electricity and electrical appliances in the entities where the trainees

work, thus reducing the possibility of an accident or disaster.


The Courses will be held from July 1 – 12, 2019 at the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College. For more
