It's been a while

Wow, it seems like it has been a few months since I posted, but I just saw it has been a couple of years.

A lot of things have been happening since my last post... which I never did follow up on, like many great projects, it fell short of funding and support.

It was going to be the next step in improving life on Ambergris, just trying to make a difference, ease the pain and suffering. The project isn't dead, if we run into some funding and support, we can bring it back to life. Funny that I use those words in this project, because bringing life back to this project, could bring life back to many.

I won't bore you with all the details over the last couple of years, but the founder of ACER sold off the supporting company, they new company that said they were going to continue it didn't, the volunteer staff has disappeared.

So here we are today... did we make a difference in the past? I think so, the medical supplies, the training, the support all had some impact.

I bet, if you could find where some of the equipment we brought to the island ended up, that it is still in use today, so that's a good thing.

So, where do we go from here? No-one every said establishing a Emergency rescue team would be easy.

Is there a need? Look at the number of people on the island. Look at the tourists that visit with medical issues. Look at the number of accidents, the trauma, the robberies, all without an Emergency Response team.

You do the math...

We're Famous!

One of my favorite movie scenes comes from the film, The Jerk, with Steve Martin.

Script excerpt:

Navin R. Johnson: The new phone book's here! The new phone book's here!

Harry Hartounian: Boy, I wish I could get that excited about nothing.

Navin R. Johnson: Nothing? Are you kidding? Page 73 - Johnson, Navin R.! I'm somebody now! Millions of people look at this book everyday! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity - your name in print - that makes people. I'm in print! Things are going to start happening to me now.

----

Ok, this really isn't a phone book, nor is it in print, but we have secured the domain name of ACERBELIZE.COM (did you know that caps don't matter in the top level of a domain name, i.e. acerbelize.com takes you to the same place as AcErBelIZe.com?)

Anyway, stay tuned, and look for us on our new web site www.acerbelize.com

Oh, if you forget, this link ( acerbelize.blogspot.com ) will take you to the correct place.

Where are we today?

So, where are we at today:

Still trying to increase awareness of the team (for ANY Medical related Emergency call ACER at Island Ferry (226-3231) Island Ferry is the command center and they will send help, but someone has to call them.


Increase the number of active team members call ACER @ at Island Ferry (226-3231) or acerbelize@gmail.com

Collect additional funds, supplies and purchase equipment (Donate via paypal acerbelize@gmail.com

Questions, PM me, or email me acerbelize@gmail.com

Please!

It's my understanding that the Ambergris Caye Emergency Rescue (ACER) Team wasn't called. We have a member that lives about 1/2 mile away with life support equipment on board, that could have responded, along with others in the area that could also respond.

If we aren't notified, we can't help...

Please Support ACER and get involved!
