CEMO Unveils Official Hurricane Shelters Ahead of 2024 Season

The City Emergency Management Organization (CEMO) has officially released the Belize City National Shelter List for 2024. As part of disaster preparedness efforts, these shelters are strategically selected to provide safe havens for residents during emergencies.


When natural disasters strike, such as hurricanes or floods, NEMO (National Emergency Management Organization) advises local authorities to open designated shelters. These shelters serve as temporary refuges for individuals and families who need protection from the elements or evacuation from high-risk areas.

The Belize City National Shelter List includes community centers, schools, and other public buildings that meet safety standards.


CEMO coordinates closely with local agencies to ensure efficient shelter management and communication during crises.


Residents are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the shelter locations in their neighborhoods and follow official guidance from NEMO and CEMO. Preparedness is key, and having access to reliable shelter information can make a significant difference in safeguarding lives during emergencies.

Stay informed, stay safe, and be prepared!
