NOTICE.

ADVICE TO THE PUBLIC ON HURRICANE
PRECAUTIONS.

1. Before the Hurricane Season :-
Make yourself acquainted with the system of
warnings at paragraph 3 below.
Make sure that you know the district relief
centre and the Red Cross representative for the
area in which you live, and who is in charge of
relief.
2.At the approach of the Hurricane season.
Make sure that all fasteners for outside doors
and windows aie in order. If possible, windows
should be reinforced with shutters and doors with
bars.
This also applies to buildings in which cattle and
livestock are to be housed. If suitable buildings
are not available let the cattle and livestock fend
for themselves, and do not tend them.


Lay in a small amount of tinned milk and other
foods as emergency rations.
Keep one or two hurricane lanterns filled with
kerosene, with matches and candles in readiness.
Also keep m stock a supply of firewood and char-
coal for cooking purposes.
A small supply of first aid supplies may come in
useful.
3. Types of Hurricane Warnings to the Public.
There are two types of hurricane warnings to the
public, viz :
(i) Cautionary.
(ii) Warning to take cover.
Cautionary.
The cautionary warning means that a storm will
not directly affect the island but can be of interest
for ships and other organizations, or that a dis-
turbance may pass over the island but is expected
to be of moderate intensity.
In St. George's the cautionary warning will take
the form of :
(1) Firing of two maroons (guns) from the
Foit.
(2) Hoisting of a red flag with a black centre
at the Fort by day.
(3) Hoisting of a red light at the ForL by
night.
In other parishes the cautionary warnings will
consist of the hoisting of a storm flag by day and
a red light at night from all Police Stations.

Warning to take Cover.
This warning will indicate that a hurricane is
expected and that it will pass over the island
Take cover warning is as follows :-
St. George's : Church bells will ring for 5
minutes.
The siien will blow for 5 minutes.
Other Parishes : Church bells will ring for 5
minutes.
4. After the Cautionary Warning :
The cautionary warning will give you ample
time in which to make your final preparations and
to see that your supplies are near at hand.
It is a good plan to paste stips of paper over the
glass window during this period, particularly if
there are no shutters. This strengthens the glass
and minimises splintering.
Secure all loose material that may be in the yard.
All fishing boats should be drawn up well above
high water mark.
5. After the Hurricane Warning :
See that all livestock have plenty of water and
food and fasten them in securely.
Fill as many clean receptacles as possible with
water for drinking.
Shut, fasten and barricade all wondows and out-
side doors and do not open them until the hurricane
has passed.
Remember that a sudden calm does not mean the
end of the storm but that 'he wind will blow again
from .he opposite direction.
Buckets of sand might also be prepared in case
any fire breaks out.
If shelter is taken in a house that shows sign of
collapsing the best place to take cover is under the
stairs or under a stout table or bedstead.
Do not go outside during the hurricane.


359












360 GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, SEPTEMBER 15, 1956.-(No. 54.)


If you have to take cover do so in as secure a
shelter as possible, certain churches, schools and
public buildings may be open for those wishing to
shelter in them.
If you go to shelter in any of these buildings take
some food with you.
Do not shelter in Ravines or low lying areas that
are likely to flood.
If you live in a low lying coastal area take shelter
on higher ground further inland. There will
probably be very high seas.
If you are taking shelter in a cellar, take with
you your supplies of food, lanterns, matches, etc.
Do not forget a tin opener.
If possible, take some light articles of furniture
and bedding and anything that will make fox
comfort.
An axe or o.her suitable ool is also useful in
case the entrance gets jammed.
A bucket or other receptacle with sand and dis-
infectant should be provided for sanitary purposes.
6. After the Hurricane :
Do not congregate in roads and thoroughfares.
Do not crowd round relief centres needlessly.
Do not use your car unless you have a job of
work to do.
Do not go sightseeing, in any case the sight will
not be pleasant.
Assist the members of the Hurricane Relief
Organizations as much as possible when asked to
do so.
The immediate concern is for the injured. Those
requiring treatment should go or be Laken to the
nearest Dispensary or Police Station. If they are
too seriously injured to be removed give infor-
mation to the Dispensary or to the nearest Police
Station.
Report any deaths at the Police Station giving
as much information regarding identity as you can
If you are rendered homeless and you can make
no other arrangements, the Police will direct you
to the temporary public shelter, or to your local
relief centre.
Never drink the water without boiling and, if
possible filtering, until the authorities have declared
it safe to drink.
If you have not already been inoculated against
typhoid have this done.
If you are injured even slightly be inoculated
against tetanus.
If you live in St. George's or on a main road you
can assist by removing from the road outside your
house the smaller debris. This will ease the work
of the organisation responsible for opening
up communications and dealing with major
obstructions.

Statistics for August, 1956.
All items ... ... 195%
Food only ... ... 208%
Food: The average level of retail prices of those articles taken into account in the food group,
was 3.2 points higher than at 31st July, 1956, and 208% higher than at 1939. This increase was due
to decreases in the retail prices of Bluggoes and Bananas and an increase in the rental prices of Sweet
Potatoes, Peas and Beans.
Rent: There has been no change recorded in the general level of the working-class rents.
Fuel and Cleaning : There was no change in the figure for this class during the perion under
review. The increase of 161% on the 1939 prices shown in the figures for 31st July, 1956, remained
unchanged.
Clothing: Information collected from retailers indicated that at 31st August, 1956, the
average level of retail prices of clothing of the kinds generally bought by the working-class families
was 1.5 points lower than at 31st July, 1956, and 184% higher than at 1939. This decrease was
due to a decrease in the retail price of Demin and increases in the retail prices of Stockings and Silk
Dress Material.
All Others: There was a decrease in the retail price of Frying Pans. This resulted in a
decrease of 7.6 points on the figure for 31st July, 1956, and 98.5% on the figures for 1939.
All Items: If the average changes in the cost of all the foregoing items are combined in accord-
ance with their relative importance in the 1939 working-class family expenditure, the resultant general
average increase at 31st August, 1956, was 2 points lower than at 31st July, 1956, and 193%
higher than at 1939.
