NEMO stages disaster simulation

Story Picture
It may have looked like the year’s biggest disaster, but the commotion today in Belmopan was in fact a simulation conducted to better prepare us for the real thing. The exercise was organised by the National Emergency Management Organisation as the culmination of a regional conference dealing with management of disaster scenes. This particular scenario imitated a mass casualty incident involving the collision of two vehicles carrying nineteen passengers.
