By BBN Staff: Yesterday, Minister of National Emergency Management, Edmond Castro joined the NEMO Shelter Inspection Committee in Orange Walk as they continued their inspection of shelters in that district in preparation for the upcoming Hurricane Season which officially opens in less than six (6) weeks from today, on June 1st, 2018.

Castro along with the inspection team, visited two shelters, namely the Government Primary School in Carmelita Village in Orange Walk East; and the Roman Catholic Primary School in the Village of San Luis in Orange Walk North.

Both shelters consist of new, sturdy and spacious structures that are properly equipped with adequate facilities to accommodate evacuees in the event of an immediate threat from natural disaster.

The Carmelita School has a capacity of 200, and the San Luis School can accommodate 140 persons.

In San Luis, Castro took the opportunity to speak with some of the students about the role of NEMO and the public in Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management.

The inspection is as a part of NEMO’s routine and comprehensive program of preparation in advance of every hurricane season.
