DMISA Remembers the victims of disasters

The annual DMISA conference always includes a candle-lighting ceremony where those who suffered through disasters and those who assisted them are remembered and honoured. In this picture Pat Adams, the President of DMISA, begins the ceremony by lighting his individual candle from the central candle.

The candles of guests of honour, DMISA Councillors and conference delegates are then lit in sequence. When all candles are lit, a message is read which communicates the intention of these sombre moments, and a minute of silence is observed.
