Tonga’s 1st strategic roadmap for Crisis and Disaster Danger Administration was launched by MEIDECC CEO Paula Ma’u today, 27 August.

The roadmap aims to attain a range of outcomes more than the up coming 3 decades, like obtaining completely operating Emergency Procedure Centres, and crystal clear criteria and suggestions for evacuation approach administration with amplified security and safety of evacuation centres, among others.

The Tonga Strategic Roadmap for Unexpected emergency and Catastrophe Threat Management (‘the Roadmap’) is a joint initiative of the National Unexpected emergency Administration Office (NEMO) and 1st Responders, supported by the Pacific Islands Emergency Management Alliance (PIEMA) Venture less than the SPC, Austraila’s Division of Overseas Affairs and Trade and New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

“We go on and glance ahead to performing closely with all our critical stakeholders for this roadmap, His Majesty’s Armed Forces, Tonga Police, Tonga Fireplace and Emergency Products and services as very well as Tonga Crimson Cross and all catastrophe relevant NGO’s here in Tonga and the Cluster Devices to even further carry out this roadmap,” said Paula.
