Sol Grenada Executes Tsunami Evacuation Exercise

Sol Grenada Executes Tsunami Evacuation Exercise

Sol EC Ltd. (Grenada), took part in the regional Caribe Wave Exercise which simulated a magnitude 6.0 earthquake generated by activity from the local under water volcano, Kick ‘Em Jenny. As a result of the simulated earthquake, tsunami waves were generated, thereby requiring immediate evacuation. The Grand Mal Pre-Primary School was also invited to participate in the exercise where 48 students along with parents and teachers enacted the simulated evacuation. All participants were pleased to be included in the exercise and asked that they be given more similar opportunities in the future. The entire evacuation process was completed in approximately 18 minutes after receiving the notification.
