2017 Cyclonic Season
Cyclone season: Let's be ready!

The cyclone season officially kicks off on June 1 and ends on 30 November 2017. Each year it is important to remember the instructions for preparation and the conduct to be taken for our safety and it is in this sense that the Collectivity invites you to verify your material and food reserves, Preparing and protecting your home, removing or securing any object that can turn into a projectile.

This year the Collectivity and the Prefecture will organize several operational meetings between the services and actors in the same sector of intervention in order not only to list the human and material resources at our disposal but also to exchange effectively on the organization Before, during and after the passage of a phenomenon.

Also, President Daniel GIBBS and his team will carry out a major cleaning operation in all the neighborhoods at the end of June. This action to improve the living environment at the very beginning of the cyclone season is necessary in the event of a meteorological event, sometimes leading to the accumulation of very large quantities of waste.

The Community of St. Martin asks you to help him to keep the island clean and advise you to start the work of pruning and cutting of the plants in anticipation of a possible cyclonic phenomenon. Everyone will then have to take all necessary measures to evacuate green waste, bulky waste and any other waste that can be dangerous in case of strong winds, towards the Galisbay waste disposal center or the Grandes Cayes eco-site in Cul de Sac.

Citizenship and the sense of responsibility of everyone involved in the implementation of this clean-up are called for. No wild deposits can be tolerated upon the announcement of a cyclone warning.

The Community of Saint-Martin thanks you for your contribution and your understanding.
