Planning for Emergencies in Belize

PADF worked with the Belize Ministry of Education, Youth, Sports and Culture, the Belize Police Department and the Dangriga Town Council to hold a fire drill at Holy Family Primary School in Hopkins, Belize. It's part of an effort to strengthen local contingency plans. We thank everyone for making this event possible. Now, students, teachers and administrators know what to do in the event of an emergency.

We've also been busy providing Community Disaster Response Teams with life-saving skills including search and rescue, first aid and shelter management. With help from the Belize Red Cross and the Belize National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO), PADF had the pleasure of awarding training certificates to the Dangriga Community Disaster Response Team (CDRT) for attending a seven-week class.
