CDERA thank British Government for assistance in Grenada

13th Sep 2004

The Caribbean Disaster Emergency Response Agency (CDERA) wish to express thanks to the British Government and the Commander and crew of the HMS Richmond which provided invaluable first responder assistance to Grenada after it was devastated by Hurricane Ivan last Tuesday.The vessel sailed through stormy weather to ensure that it was in St Georges Harbour immediately after Ivan and performed critical initial evaluation which guided the Regional Response Mechanism (RRM) and paved the way for arrival of emergency personnel.

“This demonstrates the benefit of the preparedness planning and consultation which has taken place between CDERA and the HMS Richmond from the beginning of the 2004 Atlantic Hurricane Season,” said CDERA Coordinator Jeremy Collymore.

On behalf of the Government of Grenada and members of the entire RRM, CDERA conveys it appreciation and thanks to the British Navy for its indispensable help last week.
