NEMO San Pedro/Caye Caulker Steps Up Hurricane Preparedness Info

The San Pedro Emergency Committee, in conjunction with NEMO San Pedro and Caye Caulker has launched a series of public information measures to better inform the public of hurricane preparedness. This week the district coordinator, along with volunteers posted a series of large hurricane preparedness posters at the San Pedro Town Council bulletin board and in government offices such as Belize Post Office, Immigration, Customs, Labor and Election and Boundaries to name a few.

In addition, a set of new hurricane signal flags will be delivered to the San Pedro Police Station and it is planned to deliver over 2,500 hurricane preparedness bulletins to businesses and households. Already, the NEMO San Pedro has secured a 10% discount from local business Castillo Hardware for emergency items such as flashlights, tarpaulins, plywood and other such related items.

NEMO San Pedro and the San Pedro Emergency Committee take this opportunity to remind the public to insure that they continue to monitor weather activities on a daily basis and to be prepared with their family plans. For further hurricane preparedness information visit the NEMO website at or contact the district coordinator Mr. Kevin Gonzalez at 610-4266.
