CEMO Presents Plan of Action for June 1st-Nov 30th

Darrell Bradley

With the start of the 2015 Hurricane Season, the City Emergency Management Organization, CEMO, has once again kicked into high gear, readying itself in the event of natural disaster.  This morning, CEMO convened a press conference where it outlined its plan of action for the upcoming months.  At the helm was Mayor Darrell Bradley.

“We have followed NEMO’s pattern and it sets out a certain structure and NEMO has a certain structure in which it follows, and as the chairman of CEMO and there is certain committees which are developed as a result of priority emergency management areas. For example, public health, accessing of damage, we can tell you within a couple days of and emergency what is that damage to Belize City. Is it damaged ten million dollars, is it damaged fifty million dollars, accident and emergency so if anybody needs to leave, within the context of a hurricane, there is a committee that deals with that. One that deals with shelters, all the areas of risk that require operational focus all of those are areas where we have a managing committee who can deal with that. We do an assessment of what are the areas that are seriously hot, what are the areas that need to most attention because remember when the hurricane finishes the management doesn’t finish so part of the report will go to NEMO and maybe even the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to deal with Foreign Aid.”
