Members of HMCS St.John’s work alongside British allies to clear debris from a school on South Caicos Island. Operation RENAISSANCE IRMA is the CAF mission to support Hurricane Irma relief in the Caribbean. The CAF is conducting this operation in support of Global Affairs Canada.

The crew of St. John’s is on land removing debris and restoring power and water sources, while the ship’s CH-124 Sea King helicopter and aircrew are scouting the area and delivering water to locals. Its dive team is assessing underwater damage.
