ROSE HALL TOWN, CORENTYNE – The end of April is the new completion date for the Rose Hall Town Fire Station. The driving force behind this venture is the Central Corentyne Chamber of Commerce,Wholesale Authentic Jerseys

, said the remaining works to be done on the actual building would be completed by Wednesday.The drive way is yet to be constructed and this should get started within two weeks. The painting and other fine-tuning are to be wrapped up by this weekend.Mr. Poonai said that upon completion, Government would provide a fire tender and training for manpower.As part of the bigger picture, the Chamber is hoping to have persons from all communities within the Central Corentyne area trained as fire fighting volunteers. With time being an important factor in fire fighting, Mr. Poonai pointed out that with persons trained in each community, response time could be shorter.This would mean that buildings and even lives could be saved in the event of an actual fire, since it would take a while, depending on the location, for the tender to arrive.In East Berbice, there are two fire stations; one is situated at New Amsterdam, which is some 14 miles (22 kilometers) from Rose Hall Town, while the other is at Corriverton 45 miles (73 kilometers) from New Amsterdam. The Guyana Sugar Corporation plays a pivotal role in firefighting in the Berbice area.The Chamber has already begun discussions with the Guyana Water Inc. on the issue of fire hydrants.The members are soon to hold discussions with the Minister of Housing and Water Irfan Ally to further address the issue.

Consolidation work on the 159 by 59 foot plot of land situated at the rear of the Rose Hall Police Outpost began in March last year There were some hiccups including the fact that the design for the fire station had to be modified.This was due to rising costs and their determination to stick within the $15 million budget set for the project. Against that backdrop, the design was tailored but the size of the building remained the same 37 feet by 45 feet.
