Nevis’ New E1 Titan 6×6 Fire Tender & Rescue Vehicle

August 15, 2008

Premier of Nevis and Minister of Finance in the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) Hon. Joseph Parry, received the keys and cut the ribbon to commission a top of the line US$575,000, 2008 E 1 Titan 6×6 Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting appliance on August 14, 2008 at the Airport at Newcastle.

The event which took place against the backdrop of distant lightening and thunder signaled the increased operating standard of the traveling facility to the new level 8, up from level 5.

An elated Premier Parry told those gathered to witness the occasion that the new fire tender was a demonstration of willingness of the Nevis reformation Party-led Nevis Island Administration (NIA) to spend money, to ensure that the airport would remain open at all times and to avoid a reoccurrence of the events of January 27 to February 13 2008, which left the facility’s operations level downgraded, due to crippling engine problems with the only fire tender stationed there. A problem he said that had been inherited from the former administration.

“I am very happy this afternoon to stand here before you with this truck in the background. It is a brand new truck which has been brought here by the Nevis Island Administration”¦We decided to spend the money, we decided we wanted to have a truck to bring the services up to grade five so that the airport can be opened at all times”¦We have ensured today that the [American] Eagle would land at anytime, once the Eagle wishes to come to Nevis and to this airport,” he said.
