UK Foundation donates to Saint Lucia Fire Service
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.
