Rickilee Response and Rescue Team (RRR) Air Evac continues to foster a strong partnership with Belize Emergency Response Team (BERT). Both organizations have joined forces in many medical projects, such as providing emergency services during past festivities on the island. Currently, BERT has been working with the RRR team, providing vital training and certification on Emergency Vehicle Operations to about 20 participants.
BERT’s instructor/trainer Leon Seguro is leading the course. The training started on December 7th to promote safety within RRR as they recently deployed two new emergency service vehicles on the island. The vehicles were customized in Gilbert, Arizona, USA, to access hard-to-reach areas in San Pedro and deliver a swifter response. The RRR team has also brought back the Mercedes ambulance that was in Belize City.
With the tourism season picking up, RRR looks forward to providing the best response and reminds the public that their services are at no cost. The RRR team continues to work as a team, educating and empowering their volunteers to effectively and efficiently conduct their services. “Our love for the island and helping the residents with free emergency transport is just proof of how dedicated we are,” RRR noted.Click here to read the rest of the article in the San Pedro Sun
