Fire Chief Marlon Gentle has blamed illegal tampering with electricity supplies to buildings for the increase in internal electrical fires last year.Kayum Bassalut surveys the area where his house once stood after it was torched by his drug-addicted son in May last year.Speaking to this newspaper yesterday, Gentle said that there were 45 such fires recorded last year, 14 more than the previous year. He noted however that external electrical fires, those blamed on the Guyana Power and Light Inc., went down significantly.Notably,[url=http://www.salecheapjerseys.us@#$%&/]NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap[/url], nine persons lost their lives due to fire last year, three less than the previous year, according to the Guyana Fire Service.The Fire Chief reported that his department received a total of 2223 fire calls for last year, a five percent increase on the previous year when they received 2005 such reports.In these reports,[url=http://www.salecheapjerseys.us@#$%&/]NFL Cheap Jerseys China[/url], 250 private buildings were affected by fire, leaving 542 persons homeless; compared with 245 in 2014, which left 326 persons without proper living accommodation.The Fire Chief said that 128 buildings were completely destroyed,[url=http://www.wholesalenfljerseyssale.us@#$%&/]Wholesale Jerseys China[/url], while 97 were slightly damaged. Fire also destroyed 42 motor vehicles last year.There were 82 cases of malicious setting of fire (arson) – 15 more than the previous year – while the high temperatures last year had the Fire Department racing to extinguish 1,359 bush fires.Three persons were sentenced last year for arson.A bit worrying is the increase in false alarms, which amounted to 153.The Chief Fire Officer explained that the relative success in fire fighting last year was due to the swifter intervention by the Fire Department, which is now better equipped.However, the Guyana Fire Service is gearing up to meet head-on the challenge of the ever expanding housing communities across Guyana, by establishing greater presence to improve its responses to disaster.Coming off a relatively successful fire-fighting 2015, the Fire Service will be increasing its focus on re-positioning to meet the demands of citizens. And despite the criticisms that pop up from time to time, Gentle explained that the statistics will show that the timeliness of the Fire Service?s responses has been rapidly improving.In one day last year, fire prevention coverage across Demerara was put to the test with four big blazes erupting within the space of a few hours.One of the fires occurred at the West End Youth Culture Centre at Hope Street,[url=http://www.cheapjerseysauthenticonline.us@#$%&/]Cheap Jerseys NFL[/url], Cummingsburg, while the others occurred at Zeelugt Housing Scheme, West Bank Demerara; Crane Public Road, West Coast Demerara; and Melanie Damishana Public Road, East Coast Demerara.He said that this year the Fire Department will be placing emphasis on strengthening its capabilities in built-up housing areas as well as areas earmarked for townships, such as Bartica, Lethem and Mahdia.He assured that the La Grange facility,[url=http://www.cheapestnfljerseys.us@#$%&/]Cheap NFL Jerseys China[/url], which will go a far way to easing the anxieties of residents of the new housing areas of Parfait Harmonie and Dairy on the West Bank of Demerara,[url=http://www.wholesalejerseyssale.us@#$%&/]Cheap NFL Jerseys China[/url], will be up and running soon.According to the Fire Chief, the Fire Service is awaiting the arrival of a fire truck for that station.?The truck has been shipped already and should reach here by month end and at least by midyear, the La Grange Station should be operational,? Gentle told Kaieteur News.Apart from fires, the Department was also called upon for other rescue missions such as accidents where persons were trapped in vehicles. There were more than 30 such interventions countrywide?Sometimes when we do get there, the victims are already dead, but we still have to use special equipment to free their bodies from the wreck. We even got people out of a burning house,[url=http://www.cheapjerseysfan.us@#$%&/]China Jerseys Cheap[/url],? the Fire Chief said.Additionally, the Fire Department has also been assisting some special circumstances such as supplying water in its tanks to hospitals and other institutions.
