DLCA to Host Forums for Consumer Awareness for Hurricane Season

The Department of Licensing and Consumer Affairs (DLCA) will partner with various agencies such as the Department of Health (DOH) and Virgin Islands Territorial Emergency Management Authority (VITEMA) in addition to retail organizations to promote “All Hazards Awareness” in order to prepare the public this hurricane season. The forums will take place the last Friday of every month beginning with the first forum, which will be hosted on July 22, in St. Croix’s Sunny Isles Amphitheatre and the second forum, which will be hosted July 29, in St. Thomas’ Tutu Park Mall Center Court.
“The department’s role with regard to business licensing and regulation as well as consumer protection requires facilitation of activities and other such undertakings that help in the preparation for and response to natural and other disasters that may affect both businesses and consumers. These forums are such an effort, and we urge your attendance,” said Commissioner Carrington.
DLCA thanks VITEMA and K-Mart Discount Store for partnering with it to bring an interactive display and presentation of the items and sales for hurricane season preparedness. If any business would like to set up a table to give consumer education materials on Hurricane Preparedness, contact DLCA at 713-3522 on St. Croix for more information.
