Fire Services Association President: “Some Fire stations with out appliances”

The Fire Service needs more protective equipment and fire trucks as it faces a shortage of resources amid the COVID 19 pandemic.

The call for greater resources came from President of the Fire Service Second Division, Leo Ramkissoon.

Speaking on the Fire Call Programme on Power 102fm yesterday, Mr Ramkissoon says the organisation is asking the government to make allocation in the upcoming national budget for additional fire appliances.

He said at present there are some fire stations facing challenges due to a shortage of vehicles.

Commenting on the COVID-19 pandemic, Mr Ramkissoon asked for provision to be made for more personal protective equipment.
