Cyclone preparedness exercises
Things are happening fast… I am still dealing with the issues related to my last mission (Bolivia fires), but it is time to pack and get ready to travel to Curacao, off Venezuela coast at the Caribbean, where I am going to be participating in the simulation of the response to cyclones.
The simulation is arranged by the Dutch Civil Protection team, and will be attended by the teams from various European countries, which are a part of the Union Civil Protection Mechanism. As Curacao, along with Bonaire and Aruba are dependent on crisis management from the Netherlands - it makes sense that it is the Dutch team that is taking an initiative to arrange the simulation. As always, I will try updating you on how the exercise goes, in due time!
