The Guyana Fire Service (GFS) is seeking to roll out a set of new training initiatives to enhance the skill set of its ranks and to respond to new and emerging challenges.

Home Affairs Minister Robeson Benn disclosed some of the plans on Wednesday at the commissioning of a new $37.8 million fire station at Eccles, East Bank Demerara (EBD).

Minister Benn related that he has been in talks with Barbados’ Home Affairs Minister, Wilfred Abrahams to have local firefighters use that country’s Specialised Training Facility.

According to him, the Barbadian Minister said that the regional facility was underused, and as such, invited Guyana to participate in courses offered.
