As the COVID-19 global situation evolves, the TDC Group of Companies has taken steps to safeguard its staff and customers, by implementing a series of measures to educate and protect patrons at its respective businesses.

These measures were immediately put in place following a recent presentation to the management team by Dr. Hazel Laws, the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) and Mr. Abdias Samuel, Head of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), on the pandemic.

At strategic points across the Company, several hand sanitization stations have been set up, along with bold signage under the caption Hero Habits, offering simple and helpful guidelines from industry experts.

On its social media channels, information is posted about actions that should be taken to help prevent the contraction and spreading of the disease and will be revised as updates from the health authorities become available.

To ensure customers’ and employees’ safety you are reminded to maintain “social distance”, i.e., up to six feet. In addition, payments by credit and debit cards and the use of online payment platforms, instead of cash, are encouraged.

These actions are in addition to the deep cleaning processes already in place which pays special attention to frequently touched surfaces, such as, shopping carts, shelves, light switches, doorknobs, POS systems, registers, counters, etc. There is a heightened awareness about hand hygiene and all staff are encouraged to wash their hands thoroughly and often and to wear gloves, where practicable.

An Emergency Response Team has been established to evaluate and respond, in real time, as part of the proactive approach to tend to the needs of the staff and customers, if needed.

These steps form part of the company’s ongoing commitment to balance exceptional service, while keeping everyone healthy.

Amid increasing cases of the Corona Virus (COVID-19) and its impact, the TDC Group of Companies has taken swift action to further discuss and address the illness in the workplace.

The executive directors and management team participated in an informational presentation about the epidemic, on Tuesday 3rd March 2020, which was facilitated by Dr. Hazel Laws, the Chief Medical Officer and Mr. Abdias Samuel, National Emergency and Disaster Management Agency (NEMA) Coordinator, who spoke extensively on the matter, providing accurate information, as well as, practical advice on how to deal with the infection.

The open forum included a question and answer session, where the leadership gained firsthand knowledge from the ‘experts’ who shared their concerns following reports that the virus had now reached the shores of neighbouring islands in the Caribbean region.

Immediately following the activity, a company wide plan is now in place to educate all staff, offering simple and useful guidelines on how to better safeguard themselves.

The approach forms part of an ongoing in-house human resource and health programme designed to equip employees with the understanding and skills that promote general well being and productivity.

Often property owners think their properties are fully covered in the event of a hurricane but forget about the “Average Clause” and how it can affect the funds received in the event of a claim.

Average Clause states, the policy owner should bear a portion of the loss if the asset is insured for less than the actual replacement value.  So, in simpler terms, if your property is under-insured at the time of a loss, the amount paid will only be a percentage of the claim.

Don’t worry, you can prevent this by following these precautionary measures;

  • Check with your insurance agent to ensure yearly adjustments to your premium reflects the cost of inflation and the overall value of your property
  • Reevaluate your property to be sure that you are insuring for the correct value
  • Take an inventory of the contents in your home including new valuables you may have.

If after you have taken the precautionary measure you realize that your sums insured are not adequate, then contact us at 4652511 (St. Kitts) or 4695430 (Nevis) today! Ensure your property is adequately insured…remember once a loss happens, it will be too late!


Each year the St. Kitts Nevis Fire and Rescue Services hosts an annual summer safety program in the month of July educating children from the age groups 5- 12 years old from various primary schools throughout the Federation.

The theme this year was “Building for a Safer Tomorrow by Preparing our Children Today”. Under this theme, the children were taught lessons in fire safety, traffic safety, water safety, disaster preparedness and crime and violence.

Upon completion of the program it is customary to award the Junior Fire Chief and the Junior Deputy Fire Chief. “The children were graded by answering questions about the camp, and re-enacting taught actions like the drop, stop & roll, emergency calls and what to do in an emergency”. -Leroy Caines, Assistance Coordinator

TDC Insurance company donated back to school packages to the top performers. “It is with pleasure that TDC Insurance gives back to this endeavor. We are always happy to help in programs where the importance of safety and disaster preparedness is taught.”- Evon Rogers TDC Insurance Company General Manager

The St. Kitts Nevis Fire and Rescue Services expressed its heartfelt thanks for this donation.
