The awardees were Tristan Usher, Emergency Worker of the Year, who also received on behalf of his team at the Ministry of Works the Emergency Response Team Award; Emergency Operations Centre Director and Town Councillor Aaron “Jake” Gongora, Emergency Leader of the Year; Russell Lambert, Annual Emergency Team Spirit Award (received on his behalf by Human Resources Management Chairperson, Cynthia Villagran); Deputy Chair for Transport & Evacuation, Roman Sabal from the Dangriga Town Council, Municipal Transport Department, who received the 2017 Participatory Award; and Senior Agriculture Extension Officer, Adelita Arzu, who received on behalf of her department (Agriculture Department, Stann Creek) the Annual Emergency Team Collaborations Award.

Chief organizer of the award ceremony was Keith Emanuel, NEMO’s Southern Regional Coordinator.
