DISASTER PREPAREDNESS TOOLKIT DEVELOPED FOR AGRICULTURE & LIVESTOCK SECTOR
Thursday 6th October 2011

The readiness of the Agriculture, Fisheries and Livestock sectors is critical for the sustainability of our Food Security. It is against this backdrop that the Ministry of Agriculture,
Lands, Housing & the Environment through its Communications Unit, along with the input of
farmers, and fishers have moved ahead with the development of an emergency preparedness toolkit to assist stakeholders within the sector in their planning efforts toward keeping their pets, livestock‟s, crops, machineries and equipment safe in the
event of a disasters.

The toolkit, which is accessible on the ministry‟s website www.agricultureantiguabarbuda.com provides resources on how to stay current on your disaster plan, and procedures; examples of how to promote preparedness awareness in your communities and engage other stakeholders in your efforts; as well as resources to educate the community about how to assemble emergency supply kit and make an emergency plan.

The toolkit, entitled “Saving Animals, Securing Our Fishers and Farms From Disaster” also outlines for actions Pre, during and Post a disaster.
In addition, there is a tools section which provides sample preparedness brochures, and
press materials you can use to develop and distribute your internal preparedness
messaging.
A template of the various media houses with their frequencies and other disaster related
agencies are also included.
Preparing our Agriculture, Livestock Sector and Fisheries Sectors for unexpected
disasters is a civic virtue.
