The Department of Emergency Management is pushing ahead with efforts to ensure Holetown becomes certified as the first tsunami ready community in Barbados.

DEM Director Kerry Hinds says this is part of the efforts to sensitize communities across the island.

The DEM director was speaking at a World Tsunami Awareness day event at Folkestone Marine Park, where participants in this year's Caribe Wave Exercise received their certificates.

Attendees also got a preview of the tsunami evacuation maps for Holetown and Shermans in St Lucy.
