The Barbados Fire Service (BFS) will be introducing new fees from Wednesday, April 1

Under the revised Fire Service (Fees) Order 2020, anyone using an open flame for a bonfire, barbecue or any form of open flame, will now be required to purchase a Burn Permit from the Fire Service at a cost of $150.

There will be an annual fee for commercial permits.  

In addition, a fee of $250 will be imposed for repeat responses by the BFS to false alarms, due to malfunctioning and poorly maintained fire alarm systems. This Order also reflects an increase in the non-emergency services provided by the Fire Service, such as Fire & Life Safety Inspections, Plan Reviews and Fire/Incident Reports.
