Two members of the Grand Ducal Fire and Rescue Corps have flown to the Bahamas to assist with humanitarian efforts in the wake of Hurricane Dorian.

The Minister for Home Affairs' response to requests made by the Emergency Response Coordination Centre (ERCC) was to send two communications experts from CGDIS' Humanitarian Intervention Team to the Bahamas on Tuesday.

The Grand Ducal Fire and Rescue Corps' statement explained that the two men would be in charge of deploying a satellite communication module dubbed "emergency.lu".

Both men are to stay in the Bahamas for almost three weeks, making up part of an intervention group for humanitarian missions in case of calamitous events - such as this hurricane, which has been devastating for the Bahamas over the past nine days.
