  1. Where in Bois d’Orange did the accident happen? Was it in the vicinity of the now infamous dead zone near Courts? Saint Lucian news reporters are very challenged when it comes to giving the audience all the 5 “Ws” of news reporting!

  2. Is there a difference between Emergency responders and Fire service responders in St. Lucia? Do we have privatized EMT services offered here? Just asking out of ignorance.

    • Yes there is a difference. The EMTs (Emergency Service Technician) respond to treat and transport the injured to the hospital. The fire service responds to address the potential hazards as a result from the accident (oil spills, fires etc). The fire service also have some limited form of medical training and assist in extricating victims from the wreckage with specialized tools like the ‘jaws of life’.

  3. The emergency responders can get there and act as efficiently as possible…on arrival at A&E this is where the lackadaisical attitude of the mediack staff takes over and people are left suffering. There is no urgency in that department.

      • It is alleged that there are approximately 50 nurses, and 20 doctors at Victoria Hospital to manage care for an average of 2 patients. On the other hand there are approximately 2 nurses to manage care for 30 patients at OKEU Hospital.
