In 2006, the Dr. Horacio E. Oduber Hospitaal proudly introduced a Calamity team (“HVT”) that can act in the event of calamities. The Calamity team can assist in fighting a starting fire and providing first aid, as well as in evacuating victims and giving instructions to persons that are in the building.

Because of the geographic location the hospital has chosen to form its own Calamity team to perform certain preparatory tasks awaiting the arrival of professional help, and to reduce the impact of calamities. The members of the “HVT” are all hospital employees who have the advantage of being very familiar with the facilities.

The members are selected from within all sectors of the Dr. Horacio E. Oduber Hospitaal in order that “HVT” members are 24/7 available in the building. The “HVT” members are  trained in prevention, internal emergencies, and calamities.
