“Whoever took his life has to pay and they will pay very soon.”
Those were the words of a man said to be like a grandfather to nine-year-old Cyon Paul during his funeral yesterday.
On behalf of the burgesses of St James, I would like to give this brief public thank you to the T&T Fire Department for the rapid and efficient response to a fire in St James.
On March 5 at 10.30 am, a house was ablaze on Church Street, St James. The alarm was raised and within minutes the fire department of Wrightson Road responded. They were able to expertly contain and extinguish the fire before it could spread and become a full-fledged disaster.
A combination of professionalism from the fire department as well is the foresight of the Ministry of Works in replacing and repairing the fire hydrants in our area has yielded success in the prevention of several fires in our district.
I would like to thank all those involved with the improvement of the St James fire prevention.
