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 ihe Red Cross representative foi the
area in which 'ou 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 are 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 matcne, 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


392












GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, OCTOBER 6, 1956.-(No. 62.)


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 :
(I) Firing of two maroons (guns) from the
Fort.
(2) Hoisting of a red flag with a black centre
at the Fort by day.
(3) Hoisting of a red light at the Fo3t 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 :


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 reliefcentres 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 nearest Police
Station.
Report any deaths at the Police Station giving
as much information regardmg identity as you can
