Calamity Team

The  Hospital proudly introduced in 2006 a Calamity team known as the Hulpverlenersteam (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 people in the building.

Because of its 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  familiar with the facilities.

The members are selected from within all sectors of the Horacio Oduber Hospital in order to have HVT members  24/7 available in the building. The HVT members are trained in prevention, internal emergencies and calamities.
