During his visit, Minister Caines took the opportunity to stress the importance of leadership and the role they will eventually have as firefighters in the community.

As he closed out his visit Minister Caines wished the new firefighters the best during their training. And at the completion of the course, he said he looks forward to presenting all 13 with their Certificates at the Passing Out Ceremony in August.

The new recruits include Anthrun O’Brien, Dean Smith, Devon Lambert, Dillon Charles, Dominique Nanette, Dy-Ann Simmons, Isaiah Caisey, Jacinto Brown, Jordan Lamb, Shaheed Umrani, Thomas Hart, Trevor Smith and Zahry Swan.

    Congrats to you all, the diversity if you knew any of them comes from within whom they are and their existence here was conceived by two consenting adults of that diversity your referring to. Wish them well get off of your narrow minded thinking and be positive knowing our brothers are not being left behind and making real good choices for their future success. Gosh does one always have to think so negative, and before anyone says this is another great photo op. It would have been a photo op if the Minister was shaking a well known newly appointed so and so son! Stop your negativity and praises to all of them!

      You still don’t get it do you Empress.

      Even with retirement/s you can’t have 400 firemen.

      Never mind.
      Give up.
