The University of the West Indies Seismic Research Centre (SRC) in collaboration with the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO), hosted a media briefing to officially launch my HAZ-VCT.
The myHAZ-VCT app is a citizen science platform for sharing observations of natural hazards and environmental phenomena in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. This app is designed to provide scientists (SRC), emergency managers (NEMO) and citizens of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, with first-hand information about a range of natural hazards and environmental phenomena that occur in the country. Since scientists and emergency managers cannot be everywhere, enlisting members of the public in sharing observations can provide a broader understanding of the impact to the community. This information can be used by NEMO to respond more effectively to impacted communities as well as to develop robust hazard mitigation systems.
We look forward to your usual support as we strengthen our capacity to prepare and respond to impacts of hazards
