A new fire station is coming near Bridgetown to provide emergency service to the capital city.

Chief executive officer of the Barbados Port Inc., David Jean-Marie, said yesterday a building within the port compound, which formerly housed its mechanical workshop, and located close to the main entrance, would be redesigned and configured to create the new station. It would be outfitted with two fire tenders. 

Jean-Marie made the disclosure during a media tour of the port conducted by himself and acting divisional manager with responsibility for operations, Ian Stuart. During the event, new port chairman, hotelier Peter Odle, was introduced.

He takes over from Senator Lisa Cummins, who in July became Minister of Tourism and International Transport. (GC)
