BFS to get new blood
AFTER RECEIVING MILLIONS of dollars in new equipment, the Barbados Fire Service (BFS) could soon be close to filling the vacancies in its ranks.
That’s provided those applying to work in the emergency organisation are assessed to be fit for service.
Chief Fire Officer Errol Maynard gave the assurances as he spoke to the media following a large-scale emergency drill in The City yesterday.
With Minister of Home Affairs Adriel Brathwaite in attendance, Maynard said the BFS currently had 239 workers on staff but there were some vacancies which the service was in the process of filling.
“We have a lot of individuals who are interested. In some cases, they are not exactly what we need but we are going through a process of elimination, a process of vetting, to see if we can find the exact type of candidates we’re looking for,” Maynard said. (AD)
