    I sincerely hope that we will be given back fire & rescue services in the west & east: hopefully some day we will see ambulance services in the east & west: the ambulance can housed in the same facility as the fire trucks: the fire fighters should be certified paramedics: an emergency is a very serious something(emergency services must now leave Road Town).....time saves lives and I clearly recall the years when the territory had fire services east & west(planes gone also those vital emergency services for the people of the territory)...all manner of private villas and no public services the ordinary tax payers
