As part of its COVID19 response agenda, the executive and management team of the TDC Group of Companies has taken another proactive step towards educating its staff about the COVID19 vaccination programme presently ongoing in the Federation.

On Thursday 1st April 2021, by invitation, Mrs Latoya Matthew-Duncan, Nutrition Surveillance Coordinator, in the Health Promotion Unit of Ministry of Health, made an informative presentation to a wide cross section of the staff at the TDC Training Room on Fort Street in Basseterre.

Immediately following the well-received session, a Covid-19 Vaccination Clinic led by Nurse Williams-Campbell from the Community Health Services Unit and her team, Nurses Warner, Bussue, and Hodge administered the Oxford-AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine.

The first dose was administered to Mr. Earle Kelly, Group Chairman, followed by senior managers and other staff who willingly volunteered to receive their jab to protect themselves from contracting the deadly disease.

According to Mr. Kelly, “the COVID-19 vaccination program, like all similar programs in the past is very important to ensure the protection and long-term health and well-being of our staff, customers, and by extension their families.”

He further added, “We have strongly encouraged all our staff to take full advantage of the opportunity to attend today’s session. TDC continues to play our part in achieving the seventy percent (70%) target, in the short term, to return to normalcy and re-open the economy fully.”

The staff in attendance praised the timely initiative and many are eagerly looking forward to receiving their second dose in the coming weeks.

A similar session is already being organized for the staff on Nevis in partnership with the Health Promotion Unit (HPU).

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.

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
