RESIDENTS IN THE northern and central areas of the island can breathe a sigh of relief as the Arch Hall, St Thomas fire station is expected to be reopened in “the latter part of the year”.

This assurance came from acting Chief Fire Officer Errol Maynard as he spoke to DAILY NATION after a 60th anniversary celebration for the Barbados Fire Service at the New Dimensions Ministries in Barbarees Hill, St Michael, yesterday morning.

Maynard acknowledged the project was behind a “couple months” but he stressed that the safety of person and property was not in danger as a result of the station’s closure.

“We have put things in place at St James and headquarters (Probyn Street) to respond in those areas and we have rigorously made adjustments to the response areas which were at Arch Hall. So right now it is not a major problem but we would like the station opened,” he said.  (SDB Media)
