Ambergris Caye’s water emergency response team, Triple R Response, were presented with a donation of supplies and equipment at the National Emergency Management (NEMO) office in San Pedro Town on Monday, December 10th. The supplies are expected to aid the Triple R Response Team on the island, particularly for emergencies at sea. It is expected that with an effective and well-equipped rescue team, the possibilities of a fatal accident at sea will be minimized.
The donations were presented to The Triple R Response island team of the island by Traci and Jim Curtin. All the items donated were acquired via fundraisers in Houston, Texas, USA by Triple R Response. With this donation, each Triple R Response member will have a rescue/first aid bag on their boats. Each first aid bag consists of two-way radios, marine spotlights, marine flashlights, throw ropes, binoculars, neck collars, and first aid supplies. Also the team received Co2 concentrators, an Automated External Defibrillator, a support vehicle to help with transportation in emergency situations, and other medical equipment.
