Major agencies in place for operations

Phillip Willoughby

An outline of the coordinated efforts involving the Belize Defense Force, the police department, as well as the National Fire Service was shared with the media.  Fuel stations in Belize City will remain open to the public during normal hours of operation.


Phillip Willoughby, CEMO Coordinator

“What will be taking place, that you saw in terms of the agencies at the table, we need the Belize Defense Force because they deal with search and rescue and they deal with our communications and such.  The police department provides security for the shelters, as well as the wider public for the city.  The Ministry of Health personnel deal with the health kits or the medical kits for the shelter.  Human resources or human development, the Ministry of Human Development deals with relief and supplies.  So the collaborative network on the initiative you saw in there by these agencies and other stakeholders, bring what they represent in terms of their standard operating procedures that we fulfill the mandate that was given to us by NEMO.  So we can’t singularly do and take care of everything on our own, but we need support from these other agencies to have us fulfill those mandates in relations to each and every committee that makes up NEMO.”
