Demolition works on the building which formerly housed the Fire Service station are scheduled to begin next week.

The disclosure was made by the Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority on Monday.

Earlier this year, the Authority took precautionary measures at the project site which included the hoarding and prohibition of parking in preparation for the commencement of demolition works. Stakeholder engagements with business owners on Jeremie Street, various Government Officials including Ministry of Health, vendors and taxi drivers were held to discuss the future demolition plans.

SLASPA says, in ensuring that the demolition exercise is carried out in keeping with the highest international standards has engaged the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) to assist in determining potential hazards, providing protocols for the removal of any hazardous material and to provide necessary training for the personnel who will be involved in the exercise.

At present, CARPHA is in the process of compiling the operational protocols specific to the project, in an effort to ensure the safety of employees and individuals using the immediate surroundings of the former Fire Service Building.
