Press Release:-  The Saint Lucia Fire Service wishes to inform the public that as a result of the continued threat of Covid-19, all non-essential visits to the Fire Stations are suspended until further notice.

Due to the hazardous nature of the activities carried out at fire stations, combined with our officers being first responders to confirmed and suspected Covid-19 calls, we
are endeavoring to limit the possible risks of transmission between the public and
our officers and vice versa.

Effective immediately no vending is allowed on the premises, nor non-work related visitations or tours of fire appliances, equipment or station compounds.

Persons who walk into a fire station to request emergency medical assistance or to report an emergency, should go directly to the control room window to make such a report.

A face mask covering both the nose and mouth should be worn.

Persons who come in to transact business in the Administrative and Fire Prevention departments of the Fire Service are also required to wear a face mask covering both the nose and mouth.

Everyone will be subjected to a temperature check before entry into the building, as well as mandatory hand sanitization.

Automatic sanitization dispensers are strategically placed within the buildings for ease of access and use.

We are seeking the cooperation of the public to adhere to these new safety protocols as the Saint Lucia Fire Service seeks to safeguard the protection of our officers and that of the general public.

The Saint Lucia Fire Service was established in 1974 to serve and protect the people of Saint Lucia in the event of fires, accidents or natural disasters.

With nine stations island wide, we are present and able to deliver service to our communities. For further information, please visit our website fire.govt.lc
