Micoud Fire Station
Operations began at the Micoud Fire Station on April 01, 2007. The station is located on the Micoud Hwy adjacent to the Micoud Police Station. It came into being with the mandate of providing emergency coverage from Praslin to Canelle, Vieux Fort. Before this breakthrough by the government of St. Lucia, individuals within this station ground were subject to a long wait for emergency services from the Vieux Fort Station which is about 35 minutes’ drive from the Micoud Fire Station.
Station Officer Evans was the first station commander overseeing the operations of three crews. Each crew at the time consisted of seven personnel. One was the leading fireman responsible for managing the resources under his watch. A fully equipped fire truck and one ambulance were at the disposal of a crew of seven persons, out of which three were volunteers and the remainder being fully fledged fire officers, on the first day of operation. On November 06, 2013 the station was equipped with an additional ambulance serving as a standby in the event of a mass casualty or the front line ambulance has to be put off the run.
