Remain vigilant, PM says about hurricane season

St. Maarten – Remain vigilant for the hurricane season and do not become complacent, Prime Minister Sarah Wescot-Williams said on her weekly radio program One on One with the Prime Minister. Although the island has thus far been spared, there is still a long way to go for what has been called a very active 2013 Hurricane Season, the PM said.

“Never let your guards down and St. Maarten needs to be prepared. It is a message that cannot be said too often and one that I will repeat during the course of this hurricane season. We know what we need to do as individuals, as households and as a community. As unfortunate as Hurricane Louis and those following Louis were they have been a learning lesson for us. It has made us stronger in terms of preparations in the public and private sector. We have seen some near misses and tremendous disasters in countries surrounding us. We have been spared but we should not be complacent. We have changed so many ways in how we build and in terms of cleanups. Government does clean districts but we have the responsibility as individuals to keep our surroundings clean. We need to make use of the possibilities that we have and the infrastructure that we have for cleaning up our districts. As our motto goes it really only takes one, and when that one comes it is important to be prepared.”
