Officers from the new Cayman Islands Regiment have been deployed to support the staff in Hazard Management Cayman Islands (HMCI) as the department works hard on planning to assist with the Government’s response to COVID 19. The officers have recently returned from training in Bermuda and will assist HMCI with logistical planning and support.
The Regiment team is also drawing up plans to take forward the recruitment of the first 50 volunteer reservists for the Regiment and more details on this will be released shortly.
Governor Martyn Roper said: “Although the COVID 19 emergency has come before we have been able to recruit reservists for the Cayman Regiment, it is great that the officers that were recently trained in Bermuda are able to support the planning work that is going on. We will also continue to plan recruitment for the Regiment in the coming months. Current events underline the usefulness of having a military team that can assist us in times of need.”
