By BBN Staff: The Belize City Council and the City Emergency Management Organization (CEMO), headed by Mayor Bernard Wagner and councilors continue to ensure that the city is prepared for any disaster that poses a threat to City residents.
In addition to a possible second wave of COVID-19, the country is now faced with the 2020 Hurricane Season, which commenced on Monday, June 1.
Deputy Mayor Michael Norales, who is responsible for CEMO, joined his team on the ground for daily finalizing of plans to ensure that CEMO is able to handle any situation that may occur.
To update the residents of CEMO’S state of preparedness, a week of educational talk shows was conducted and informative flyers were posted on the Council’s social media pages as it relates to the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) contact numbers along with the names of this year’s hurricanes and a listing of hurricane shelters in Belize City.
The council informed that to mitigate the risk of the city being flooded, drains and canals continue to be cleaned and cleared of debris daily.
CEMO encourages families to have a Family Hurricane Plan, ensure that each member of the family knows the plan and further encourages them to listen to accurate information sent out by NEMO OR CEMO as all indications are that this year’s hurricane season will be a very active one.
“Let us pray for safety from both the threat of COVID-19 and an active hurricane season. Be safe everyone,” the council said.
