By Aaron Humes: The National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) was active early on Independence Day following a devastating and deadly fire on Caye Caulker.
The fire, which destroyed a two storey building, has left four families homeless and one person is confirmed dead.
Belize Defence Force (BDF) and the Belize Coast Guard personnel flew and sailed to the island under the arrangement of National Emergency Coordinator Colonel (Ret) Shelton Defour.
The relief mission was led by NEMO Central Region Coordinator Al Westby and Belize Rural South Coordinator Vanessa Parham, who were also assisted by NEMO Belmopan Assistant Coordinator Dalton Eiley. The BDF Defender Aircraft was flown by Major Adran Claude Ramírez.
