CDB Approves USD11 Million for Upgrade of Saint Lucia Fire and Emergency Department

The emergency response capabilities of the Saint Lucia Fire and Emergency Department will be enhanced through a Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) loan valued at just over USD 11 million.

The financing will underwrite the cost of upgrading equipment available to fire officers, enhancing fire and emergency infrastructure for more resilience to climate and environmental hazards, and improving the work environment. Officers will also receive industry-standard training to improve skill levels, and, where warranted, psychosocial support when impacted by traumatic events in the line of duty. The project aligns with the CDB’s strategic objective of increasing resilience and adaptive capacity to disaster risk and climate change impacts and building environmental resilience.
