President of the Dominica Public Service Union, Steve Joseph, calls for improved policies to appropriately aid Public Officers pre and post-disaster period.
Referencing the advent of Tropical Storm Erika in 2015 and Hurricane Maria in 2017, Joseph explained the added destruction of persons who are still employed, paying a mortgage but cannot go home – this specifically applies to the entire community of Petite Savanne who have been displaced by the passage of Tropical Storm Erika in 2015.
Steve Joseph adds that measures for storage of healthy food needs to be considered as in most cases, persons develop added health complications after a crisis – due to the amount of infrastructural and crop damage wrought upon a country by storms –persons are left with processed tin-stored items for food, in the first few days post the disaster.

Mother of the late police officer Stanley Toussaint expresses her joy in the court’s decision to have her son buried in his home community of San Sauveur, says that is what he would have wanted
Mother of the late police officer Stanley Toussaint expresses her joy in the court’s decision to have her son buried in his community of San Sauveur. The court matter was between some members of Toussaint’s family and his common-law partner who have been at odds since Toussaint passed away on March 21, 2021, at the Dominica China Friendship Hospital (DCFH).
The late marine officer’s family requested to have him laid to rest in the community he was raised, stating that would have been what he wanted, but his partner demanded that it be done in the city of Roseau. Speaking to Q95 this morning Miss Toussaint said that was the best decision.
She says she knew in heart that if he wasn’t buried home, he would not rest in peace. She says it will take some time for her to get over the fact, because he was her right hand, but ultimately everyone is happy with the decision.
