Safeguarding life from potential natural disasters

Teacher Luvy Hernandez and the Licda. Katherine Flores, members of the URACCAN Bluefields Campus Risk Management Commission, held a virtual meeting with the University Risk Management Commission (CUGIR), organized from the UNC.

This session presented the different scenarios that each venue will develop before the next Multi-Threat National Exercise.

In the same context, teacher Hernandez refers, "this time it will be a different practice, because it will be done in a virtual way, in which we will know how communication is both within the university to respond to such situations, and externally with regard to coordination with the UNC, COMUPRED and CROPRED".

"We've programmed the stage in a tropical storm, becoming a category one hurricane; the medium where it will be developing is through an application, Zoom, and in a conference room, in the exercise participates the entire university community, entering that room, and will be told the scenario, the problem, as well as publicize the actions of each of the brigades that will be participating," the teacher reported.

The schedules established for the performance of this exercise were coordinated with CODEPRED, CORPRED, COMUPRED, INETER, SINAPRED, CIGIR URACCAN Bluefields.
