Bermuda to host meeting of fire chiefs

The Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service will next week meet with fire chiefs from across the Caribbean to share strategies and experiences.

This year's annual conference for the Caribbean Association of Fire Chiefs is set to take place at the Fairmont Southampton, bringing together fire chiefs from Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Guadeloupe, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, Sint Maarten, St Vincent, St Croix, St Thomas and Saba.

A BFRS spokesman said: “The fire chiefs gather to learn and share ideas pertaining to strategic management, enhancing emergency medical services, disaster response management, incident command competencies and officer development.

“The conference will also be hosting a number of major vendors of fire service firefighting equipment from the United States, Canada, the Caribbean and United Kingdom.”

BFRS fire chief Reginald Burchall, who has served as vice-president for the association for the past four years, said he welcomed the opportunity to host the annual conference, calling the opportunity to showcase Bermuda and the BFRS a privilege.
