The Government of Saint Lucia, led by Prime Minister Hon. Philip J. Pierre, has allocated more than $26 million to enhance the capacity of the Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) to improve emergency response services in Saint Lucia.

The Lower House of Parliament, on October 3, 2023, passed a motion tabled by Prime Minister Pierre, to secure the financing from the Special Fund Reserve of the Caribbean Development Bank allocated from the European Investment Bank Climate Action Line of Credit II.

The funds will be used to procure new emergency response vehicles including an aerodrome truck, train fire officers, strengthen the institutional framework of the SLFS and upgrade the Fire Service Training School facilities.
