Caye Caulker Gets First Fire Truck, through U.S. Donation

Caye Caulker Village has received its first-ever fire truck, through a donation from the United States of America. The vehicle came aboard a U.S. Air Force C-17 and will serve the northern part of the island. The truck was donated through the assistance of the late James E. York the Third, and the Beechworld Christian Church from Columbus, Ohio. This delivery is the first of two American military flights scheduled to bring emergency response vehicles to Belize this month. They fall under the auspices of the Denton Humanitarian Assistance Program, a multi-agency effort among the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Agency for International Development. Through the program, U.S.-based non-governmental organizations are provided cost-free transportation of humanitarian goods and cargo on U.S. military carriers to countries in need. Belize has benefited heavily from humanitarian aid that has arrived since the launch of the Denton Humanitarian Assistance Program in 1987.
