GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, SEPTEMBER 29, 1956.-(No. 60.)


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 otner
foods as emergency rations.
Keep one or two hurricane lanterns filled with
kerosene, with matunes and candles in readiness.
Also keep in 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. Gcorge's the cautionary warning will take
the form of :
(1) Firing of two maroons (guns) from the
Fo t.
(2) Hoisting of a red flag with a black centre
at the Fort by day.
(3) Hoisting of a rea light at the FoIL 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 siren 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 strips 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 windows 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.
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 for
comfort.
An axe or other suitable 'tool 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 taken 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 neatest Police
Station.
Report any deaths at the Police Station giving
as much information regardig 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.
