I hope this is a wake up call to the town board, the BTB, the Minister of Tourism and the GOB. The SPFD is understaffed, underfunded and under equipped for the needs of the rapidly growing island. Chief Garcia does a great job with what he has to work with, but he needs help. Unlike The mainland, there is no close help available for large incidents like this. I agree Marty, "gut wrenching".
I'm so glad no one was injured and it didn't spread to other properties. I look forward to having a beer in the new Ramon's, as I am sure they will rebuild and make it as wonderful again.
I hope homeowners and resort owners look at their own properties and mitigate hazards and come up with a plan in case of a fire.
