Odyssey Aviation’s FBO in Nassau in the Bahamas is the main launch site for the hurricane Dorian relief airlift after the strongest hurricane on record since records began in 1851 destroyed the northern islands of the Bahamas over Labor Day Weekend.
Acting as a base for the Bahamas Government and its multiple agencies, NGO’s, aid workers and support teams, overseen by the Bahamas National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), the Odyssey team is supporting the coordination of the first responders and managing the procurement, organization and distribution of the relief supplies.
Odyssey has created a makeshift triage center to assist with the evacuees arriving with immediate medical attention, nourishment and fluids.
Odyssey president Steven Kelly said, “2,000 evacuees have already been processed through the Odyssey facility and we expect that number to double.”
With winds sustaining at 185 mph the devastation of property and loss of life on Abaco and Grand Bahama Islands will define the largest natural disaster in Bahamian history.
