UK Foun­da­tion do­nates to Saint Lucia Fire Ser­vice

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Last week the Saint Lucia Fire Ser­vice was the re­cip­i­ent of four neb­u­liz­ers from a for­eign-based donor, that could as­sist asth­mat­ics in cri­sis while they are be­ing trans­ported to hos­pi­tal.

The neb­u­liz­ers, which cost 600 pounds ster­ling, were do­nated by the Saint Lucia Am­bu­lance Health Care Project from the UK. The founder, Mau­reen Mullings, has main­tained a long­stand­ing re­la­tion­ship with the Saint Lucia Fire Ser­vice, from 2010 when she first do­nated stair chairs.

Ms. Mullings, who lives in the United King­dom, is of Saint Lu­cian de­scent. She says she be­came aware of the Fire Depart­ment's need for ma­te­rial sup­port be­cause of the ex­pe­ri­ence of a fam­ily mem­ber.

Ms. Mullings cred­its UNI­SON, one of the largest unions for the med­i­cal and clin­i­cal pro­fes­sion in the United King­dom, for con­tribut­ing to her cause.

Act­ing Chief Fire Of­fi­cer Mr. Lam­bert Charles wel­comed the gen­er­ous ges­ture dur­ing a brief cer­e­mony on Fri­day, Novem­ber 6, 2015 not­ing that the neb­u­liz­ers will be uti­lized to aid pa­tients on am­bu­lances as much as pos­si­ble.

Pre­vi­ously the Am­bu­lance Health Care Project from the UK pro­vided post-Christ­mas Eve Trough as­sis­tance to the Fire Depart­ment.
