In ‘Beyond the Scene’ we will focus on our technical team, local agencies and all those who have contributed to the ongoing efforts in strengthening our seismic network and to increase our preparedness during the current volcano emergency.
Today we feature our own home grown Kemron Alexander, Senior Seismic Technician in the Soufriere Monitoring Unit (SMU) of NEMO.
Kemron hails from Belmont (near Mespo) and joined the staff of the SMU in 2008 under the then leadership of Gelogist/Volcanologist Ms. Aisha Samuel.
He is responsible for maintaining the seismic equipment locally and supporting the Engineering and technical team from the Seismic Research Centre (SRC). He is ably supported by Asroy Price our Junior Technician who will be featured in Part 2.
Kemron, Asroy and Vibert Bonadie another staff member were the first to lay eyes on the new dome during a visit to the volcano on the 29th of December, 2020 informing NEMO and the SRC of the ongoing effusive eruption.
Kemron holds a Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems. He is also a farmer when not too busy with the volcano. He also supports the warehouse team in the maintenance of small engines (generators, chainsaws).
We salute Kemron, one of our dedicated technicians in ‘ Beyond the Scene’.
