Infrequency of Fires means no demand for fire departments

Providenciales, 02 Feb 2016 – Apparently, there will have to be more fires in the family islands for there to be a domestic fire unit established, this was explained by the Premier on Friday while addressing media questions about the lack of a domestic fire service in Grand Turk.

“There are plans but those will come with need and demand because obviously the best model is to have domestic and the aerodrome, but, as you know most of the family islands do not have frequent air flight services. So it is really not the best cost effective to both services. In Grand Turk the chances of having a fire at the same time a flight is landing is increasing so we have to have both services.”

Fire Services, just like the Police Force, falls under National Security which is the responsibility of the British.
