Staff from Tonga’s National Emergency Management Office – NEMO and His Majesty’s Armed Forces are conducting an Emergency Drill Exercise in Ha’apai.

Director of NEMO – Leveni ‘Aho says the drill will help inform the public about their operations when a disaster strikes.

This includes shipping of equipment for assistance and setting up an evacuation center to be used as temporarily shelter by the victims of any natural disaster.

‘Aho adds, this is the appropriate time for the drill because many people will be on the island for the three different celebrations this week and next week.

Meantime, the drill will also test the current standard of the emergency equipment and tools as water desalination machines, generators and trucks.
