Fire service kept busy in hurricane

A woman with serious health problems was rushed to the hospital by firefighters.

The woman, affected by a string of health complications, was treated by fire service EMTs and taken to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital as no ambulances were available.

A spokesman for the fire service said it was just one incident dealt with while the island battened down for Hurricane Paulette.

He added firefighters also tacked an electrical fire in the Harrington Sound area and made a “life saving intervention” after a serious bike accident on Harbour Road in Warwick last night that required immediate transport.

Firefighters also attended two automated fire alarms.

The spokesman added that the BFRS would stay active and help with recovery in the last of Hurricane Paulette and its aftermath.
