Hip, Hip, Hooray! Daryl Vaz Celebrates Bush Fire Computers

Latest Jamaica News (McKoy’s News):  Daryl Vaz Celebrates Bush Fire Computers The handing over of 33 desktop computers to the Jamaica Fire Brigade last week has left Jamaica’s Climate Change Minister Daryl Vaz, in a celebratory mode.

The core purpose of the computers will be the mapping of areas across the island which are plagued by bush fires, which result in millions of dollars in losses each year.

According to the Minister, the computers will have special software which will allow for effective database management and will also be supported with Global Positioning System (GPS) units that will assist with proper identification of these bush fire locations.

The Minister posted images of the hand-over on his Facebook page recently, with himself and Local Government Minister Desmond McKenzie and JFB and DCB representatives, where he praised donors, the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) for the gesture which he said is part of the ongoing efforts to furnish “this critical Government Department with necessary infrastructure”.

The Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) must be commended for the part they have played in making the funds available for this initiative, and we look forward to the fulfillment of the Project’s objectives over its final few months,” Vaz said.

This is a strategic and critical move, ladies and gentlemen, given the extremely dry and hot conditions which we are experiencing, which can undoubtedly be attributed to climate change,” Vaz explained.

He said that in addition to the computers being handed over, the Jamaica Fire Brigade will also be outfitted with additional fire-fighting paraphernalia to be delivered at a later date.

So this handover is really a signal of more to come in this important collaboration for national development,” Vaz said.

Some of his followers expressed gratitude that better attention was being paid to environmental conservation.

It’s a wish I dreamed of for a long time. Hate to see persons, on purpose, setting fires and destroying the environment,” Venetta Sammott said, while Peter Clarke batted for the provision of vehicles to provide fire-fighting services in areas with hilly terrain.

Good stuff!!   Now, we need some 4wd pickups converted to mini fire trucks to deal with bush fires where the big trucks cannot access,” he said.
