Introduction to Hazards

Experience has shown, Guadeloupe is exposed to major risks opermanently. These natural hazards is not inevitable. Each of us can participate in their consideration on a daily basis by an attitude measured.

Feature Departmental Major Risk of Guadeloupe (DDRM) includes the objective to disseminate accurate information on all the natural phenomena which public services are aware. Indeed, anyone can check this by cyclonic period, the perfect populations prior information on the risks to which they are exposed, is the pledge to the day when something catastrophic happens, effective management of the crisis. To go beyond in taking risks in Guadeloupe, we have initiated a reform of the management of crisis, on the one hand thanks to the adoption of an effective command post and on the other hand a Relief precise planning. Both measures rely on enhanced. To complement this, plans for risk prevention (PPR) are being prepared for several towns in Guadeloupe. They are town planning documents intended to be incorporated into the plans Occupation of Land (POS).

We deliver it to your attention all these factors described in the dossier Departmental Major Risk (DDRM) so that together we develop now a culture of risk guadeloupéenne continuing to improve individual and collective behaviour.
