dinner and awards


BFS

This year will mark 50 years in existence for The Barbados Fire Service Association.
This milestone will be celebrated under the theme Building Unity.
The Association has played major roles in the improved conditions for the 239 officers it represents, such as improved firefighting gear and the educating of its members through numerous in-house classes.
Another major achievement was the reduction of the duty shift system from 96 hours per week to 42.
As they go about the objectives for this year, the Association will be hosting a dinner and awards ceremony, for its members.
This will be the second time the dinner would have been hosted in part with the Barbados Fire Service Sports and Social Club.
The occasion has become a highly talk about event among the membership of the two bodies. We look forward to an enjoyable evening.
