NEMO Stann Creek Ready to Evacuate the Peninsula, if Necessary

In the south, particularly as it relates to the Placencia peninsula, Communications Officer Doctor Tanya Nunez from NEMO Stann Creek says that public transportation remains on standby to evacuate residents, if the need arises.

“If we feel that the communities are no longer safe and the people want to evacuate – for example Placencia, Seine Bight – we have buses on standby, but we are channeling that information through the village councils so that they can liaise with us so that we can move as quickly as possible. So if you are going to shelter, we want to urge you to please be as prepared as possible. We know times are hard, but if you can take at least three days’ supply of food and water with you that would assist NEMO with supplies. Remember that you might not be at the shelters by yourself; you will be with other people. Of course the police officers will be there to keep law and order, but we are encouraging everybody who happens to be in the shelter that we are still as much as possible practicing COVID protocols.”
