I am very pleased to report that thanks to Miss Paula’s wonderful donations our San Pedro Branch office is ready for action. Yesterday Gigi, Paula and I met up and sorted through all the things Paula was donating to our worthy cause and then we took them over to the office. I did a quick set up so she could see what her stuff would look like and knew I would be going Nate show on the room later in prep for today’s first volunteer & member sign up. I am so glad Mary and David are joining me from 10am – 1pm to help man the office.
One my tasks this morning before heading to town was to make a Red Cross first aid kit for our San Pedro Branch. I was inspired by the one Paula gave me yesterday that I totally fell in love with, it was also a good reminder that I need to check all of ours and do some restocking. Even though it is a gorgeous warm sunny day Hurricane season is just around the corner and the recent rain is a good incentive to start preparations sooner than later.
I must confess it was not until I moved to Belize that I started a first aid kit collection. What got me started was thinking in terms of emergency preparedness kit when hurricane Dean was coming and finding a good way to recycle the plastic packaging our sheets came in. You can see my homemade Hurricane season kit and my emergency light collection in Hurricane Season Belize – time to prepare post from May 2009.

I just got an email that the new Minister of NEMO is Hon: Godwin Hulse, anyone happen to have contact info for him? Also looking to connect with any trained lifeguards on the island.
