By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Last month, Hurricane Lisa ravaged through Belize damaging homes and knocking off power.

In preparation for Hurricane Lisa, community members from across the country responded to the call to assist their neighbors, to assist at the hurricane shelters and to clean up and repair in the aftermath.

The Cayo Central Emergency Responders (CCER) led by Alberto Palma was in Santa Elena and the 10 villages of the constituency assisting residents, coordinating and responding to calls for help. The volunteer team mobilized leaving their own homes to ensure safety and security of those in the community.

Palma said that he came up with the idea to form an emergency response team after the flooding in 2020 where a group of community members joined efforts to rescue and evacuate several families.

Since then, Palma began working with a core group of community volunteers to equip themselves with basic training in order to be able to respond in emergency situations.

Immediately after Hurricane Lisa, members of the CCER went out to conduct assessments and assist residents and authorities in cleaning and clearing debris.

Tonight, Cayo Central Area Representative, Alex Balona thanked all community volunteers for their arduous work, their dedication to community service and their steadfast commitment to responding to the call for help in their communities.

“I thank you all for responding and assisting the residents in this community and I encourage you to actively participate in future trainings for first responders,” Balona said.

The volunteers include former BDF officers, Special Constables and village and community leaders.
