Repairs to several substations of the Virgin Islands Fire & Rescue Service across the territory are expected to be completed in 2020.
This is according to Works Minister Kye Rymer who gave an update in a recent session of the House of Assembly.
“The first phase of the works on the Road Town Fire Station is completed and the second phase — the Barracks — is expected to commence very early in the first quarter of 2020. This together with the third phase — the Bay — should be completed during the fourth quarter of 2020,” Minister Rymer stated.
He added: “The East End/Long Look fire station is very near completion. This station has been completely refurbished with a new roof, new floor, fresh paint on the inside and outside, new air condition unit and floor unit.”
Minister Rymer further said the fire station in Capoon’s Bay is also nearing completion. He said roller shutters are the last items to be installed on to the building.
He also said works will soon commence for fire stations on all the sister islands.
“The bill of quantities have been completed, contracts drafted and contractors selected for the fire stations on Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda and Anegada,” Rymer said.
