By BBN Staff: The Government of Belize in a press release issued this evening, said it has reached a temporary agreement with the Belize Emergency Response Team (BERT).
According to the release, GOB has offered to pay BERT $45,000 monthly for the next six months while negotiations continue. Negotiations will resume on Monday regarding the long-term financial sustainability of BERT’s essential ambulance services.
GOB added that it is committed to ensuring Belizeans have access to quality emergency services. The negotiations came in response to BERT’s announcement that it would have to shut down ambulance services for the Belize district starting yesterday because of salary issues for EMTs.
This action culminated with an emergency meeting between BERT and Ministry of Health officials, giving way to the newly approved temporary agreement.
