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

Collect additional funds, supplies and purchase equipment (Donate via paypal

Questions, PM me, or email me


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!
