By BBN Staff: On Monday, the United States Embassy delivered a fire truck to the Fire Station in Ladyville.

Chargé d’Affaires, a.i. Keith Gilges presented the fire truck to Fire Chief Colin Gillett, of Belize’s National Fire Service.

“By providing transport to ensure that today’s donation is made possible, we in the United States government are reiterating our commitment to building Belize’s disaster and crisis response capabilities, and to protecting the health and safety of the Belizean people. Whether you are in the United States or Belize, firefighters represent some of the bravest and most selfless individuals you will find in any society. These are the individuals who run into danger, not away from it, to save the lives of others. The U.S. Embassy is proud to stand in support of firefighters across Belize,” said Chargé Gilges.

The Volunteer Fire Department of Kelly, North Carolina donated the fire truck through the U.S. non-governmental organization Global Gear Initiative.

 The United States Government delivered the fire truck through the Denton Humanitarian Aid program, a jointly administered program of USAID, the Department of State, and the Department of Defense.

The U.S. Embassy says that this program commenced more than 30 years ago to assist U.S. based non-governmental organizations with delivering humanitarian cargo to countries in need around the world. Since then, millions of pounds of cargo have been delivered by land, air, and sea.
