GREAT BAY (DCOMM):— The first preparatory meeting in preparation for Hurricane Exercise 2016 (HUREX 2016) took place earlier this week in the conference room at the Fire & Ambulance Department in Cay Hill.
HUREX takes place on an annual basis and includes the 10 Emergency Support Functions (ESFs) from the country’s Disaster Management Organization along with the Dutch military detachment based on the island.
The exercise takes place under the banner of the Fire Department/Office of Disaster Management.
The exercise allows all relevant government agencies along with the military to familiarize themselves with operational protocols in the event of a disaster and in this case a hurricane.
