The National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, received about 300 Emergency Kits from Fidelity Bank Bahamas Limited during a presentation at NEMA on Gladstone Road on Wednesday, July 18, 2018. Fidelity deemed the gesture part of its corporate responsibility to assist the vulnerable throughout the communities. Director of NEMA, Captain Stephen Russell, who accepted the kits, applauded Fidelity for its donation, which he viewed as quite timely, as the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season had already begun. In each backpack, the supplies comprised a flashlight and batteries, plastic bag for important documents, first aid kit, cell phone charger, multi-purpose pocketknife, radio, a list of emergency contacts, and other essential items. The kits can be used in the event of any disaster, natural or man-made. The kits will be handed over to the Department of Social Services, the agency responsible for identifying the recipients throughout the communities in New Providence and the Family Islands.
