    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The National Emergency Commission (CNE) provided training to indigenous inhabitants of 38 communities in Talamanca to familiarize this population in the processes of risk management and management teams through radio communication.

    As explained by Sheilly Vallejos, director of Risk Management CNE, this project is part of the actions that seek to incorporate communities as a fundamental part of operational and preventive work.

    She added that this population has a role in early warning, which was established several years ago in this region, in order to oversee and monitor the Sixaola river.

    To this end, the institution set up about 30 radio communications that are managed by them and that allows daily monitoring of the behavior of the river.

    Meanwhile, Melvin Cordero, Talamanca mayor, said he was very grateful for the importance being given to these communities.

    “These people,” he said, “Are doing a great job reporting the behavior of rivers which allows time and information for evacuation or to take action if necessary.”

    Some of the communities included were Arenal, Katsi, Yorkin, Sibuju, Amubri, Shiroles, Suretka, Sibobi, Gavilan Canta Alto Buriñak. Telire Alto, Alto Orochico,  and Watsi. (Crhoy)
