Starting in April, a new fire station will be built at Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport in Saba, reports The Daily Herald.
The new fire station will enable Saba’s firefighters to carry out their work more effectively. The current station at the airport is outdated and has limited facilities.
The fire station will also include two garages that will accommodate two fire engines, sports facilities, a staff canteen, various work and conference rooms and sufficient facilities to prepare and carry out exercises.
The new fire station is expected to be ready in 2022. The fire station’s construction has also been designed in such a way that it can withstand category-five hurricanes.
