  1. The follow supports my plea to have a sub fire station within the proximity of the Ole Towns historical buildings as well as them residents living in St. George’s.
    Note: “At approximately 1:05am this morning [April 18] the Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service [B.F.R.S.] responded to a report of a confirmed Brush Fire near the intersection of Barry Road and Coot Pond Road, St. George’s.”
    Granted, it had been a brush fire this time but, what had it not been a brush fire and a residence or God forbid, a line of historical buildings? A fire like that can / will spread far too quickly for the Clearwater Fire Dept. to arrive from Clearwater to combat this or any other fire.
    There has to be a better way. (May be some form of Taxing on the land owners / business etc. on that side of the bridge?
