Requested via the EU civil protection mechanism, deployed two volunteers with one rapid deployment kit to the area affected by Hurricane Dorian – a category 5 hurricane.

Hurricane Dorian – a category 5 hurricane – made landfall over the Bahamas in Abaco Islands on 1 September, resulting in wind speeds of up to 300km/h and storm surge flooding of 18-23 feet (5.5-7 metres) above normal tide levels.

The team installed an satellite communication system in High Rock, Grand Bahamas, supporting the IMC (International Medical Corps) field hospital. Services are provided to the hospital personnel, patients and the public.
