San Pedro Town will soon be the recipient of a fire truck that arrived at Belize’s Philip S.W Goldson International Airport on Wednesday, May 8th. Acquired in the United States of America (USA), through the efforts of the Rotary Club of Ambergris Caye, the fire truck came aboard a U.S Airforce C-17 Globemaster aircraft shortly after 2PM. Arrangements are now being made to transport the truck to the island, where it is expected to be delivered to the San Pedro Fire Department in a week or two. The fire truck is a 1983 Seagrave model and was formerly operated by Carlisle Township Fire Department in New Brunswick, Ohio, USA. The San Pedro Sun was informed that the vehicle has a 750-gallon water tank, in good condition with around 28,000 miles on it, and only four thousand miles on its transmission.

This fire truck will join the two current trucks in service on the island. Unofficial reports are that two trucks will remain at the station downtown San Pedro, while the third truck will be stationed south of town to respond better to fire emergencies. This will be the second truck donated to the San Pedro Fire Department. The most recent donation took place in December 2018, when Digi Belize handed over a new fire truck to the island’s fire department.

Would not it be so much wiser for all big or small resorts to have on site sea pumps? For use by condo owners or employees to help, until fire departments arrives?
So much water east and west, but buy the time a trucks like that comes up north or south, place is burnt to the ground.
