Saint Lucia Fire Service Holding First Ever Gender Equity Training


The Saint Lucia Fire Service will be hosting its first ever Gender Equality and Minority Sensitivity Training at the Saint Lucia Fire Service Training School in Vieux Fort, on May 29 and 31, 2024.

This training aims to promote gender equity and minority sensitivity within the Saint Lucia Public Service, and raise awareness about interface management and privileges related to race, gender, hierarchy, abilities, religion, and age.

It is designed to enhance the understanding and sensitivity of participants, including EMTs, senior officers of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force, the Saint Lucia Fire Service, the Bordelais Correctional Facility, and the doctors and emergency staff at the hospitals.

“The training is being offered to policy makers in the different sectors who handle cases of marginalized persons, so they can get the sense of what the circumstances are for these persons when they go through traumatic experiences,” explained Acting Station Officer Ireneus Henry, officer in charge of Emergency Medical Services for the Saint Lucia Fire Service. “In turn, they can use that information to enhance their policy making as it relates to the minorities in Saint Lucia.”

The training will be conducted by a qualified and experienced facilitator, Ann-Morla Meyer, the Equal Opportunity Commissioner from the Department for Energy and Information at the University for Applied Sciences, Berlin, Germany.

The sessions will include interactive exercises, which will provide invaluable perspectives to all participants.

  1. Trust them foreigners to come and peddle their rubbish. Let’s see who this clown would call if her mother passed out from smoke inhalation if her house were burning. A woman or and actual man who can carry her mother out.

  2. Here comes a WHITE WOMEN coming to teach the blacks how to behave. History repeats it self.

  3. You all read “gender” and jumped to the most undereducated and unintelligent conclusion. Did you all read the article?

  4. I assume this is another freebie paid for by foreign do-gooders. With all of the immediate problems in st. Lucia, such as crime, poverty, dangerous roads, water shortages, etc., how can this type of training possibly be an urgent need? And I’d like to know what expertise this German instructor possibly has concerning minorities in St. Lucia. If it’s free, we’ll take it seems to be the guiding principle in St. Lucia.

  5. This stuff is destroying America and Europe and now it is coming to St. Lucia. Kindly ask her to return to Germany and not come back.
