Urgent Fire Safety Advisory For Cummingslodge Residents

Dear Residents of Cummingslodge,

The Guyana Fire Service is currently responding to a large grass fire in the area, resulting in significant smoke engulfing the vicinity. Your safety is our utmost priority, and we urge you to adhere to the following precautions until the fire is fully extinguished:

  1. Stay indoors if possible: Close all windows and doors to prevent smoke from entering your homes.
  2. Use air conditioning: If available, set your air conditioner to recirculate indoor air to minimize smoke infiltration.
  3. Avoid outdoor activities: Limit your time outdoors, especially if you have respiratory issues. Consider wearing a mask if necessary.
  4. Stay informed: Keep updated with local news and advisories from the Fire Service for the latest updates on the situation.
  5. Seek medical help if needed: If you experience difficulty breathing or any health concerns due to smoke exposure, seek medical attention promptly.

Additionally, we urge all citizens to report grass or wildfires immediately and take proactive measures to prevent fire hazards on their properties. This includes clearing dry vegetation, removing flammable materials, maintaining defensible space, and having fire extinguishing tools readily available.

Please be aware that our dedicated firefighters, along with water tenders #105, #115, and water carrier #16, are working tirelessly to contain and extinguish the blaze. You will be promptly notified once the fire is fully under control.

Your cooperation and vigilance are crucial during this time to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone in the community.
