Storage facilities are located along the two landborders (Mexico and Guatemala) and at the two seaports, Belize City and Big Greek Port. Additionally, five warehouses of the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) are located throughout the country in strategic points and in high areas to avoid flooding.

The storage capacity of the border with Guatemala (Benque Viejo Border) is 930 m2 (10,000 ft.2). In case of a natural disaster, all of these warehouses can be made available to support the emergency response in coordination with NEMO.

For the northern border with Mexico, the Border Management Agency has a storage capacity of 9,290 m2 (100,000 ft.2). In case of a natural disaster the border can be used as an entry point for humanitarian assistance to Belize through road transportation.
