Leading Fireman, Wayne Letang, has called on citizens to develop an action plan. He encouraged Dominicans to know their district fire stations and include them in family safety plans.
According to Letang, change is possible by practicing safety protocols and conducting safe practices.
He states that in an emergency it is important to know all local emergency numbers including the police and on-call nurses.
Meanwhile, Letang says in an effort to effect change within the communities, firemen have become educators on fire safety as well as search and rescue.
Letang states that records show that firemen have done exceptional training programs around the island and vows that the fire department will continue to work as educators in the communities.
