The Barbados Fire Service Association is celebrating its accomplishments as it marks 50 years since being established.

Addressing a service at the Bethel Methodist Church this morning, chairman Adrian Brome said the association had been able to reduce the number of work hours for officers, negotiate for improved fire fighting gear and help improve the education of members through numerous training opportunities.

Another major achievement, Brome pointed out, was the reduction in working hours from 96 hours per week to 42.

Among those attending the service were Dennis De Peiza, general secretary of the Congress of Trade Union and Staff Associations (CTUSAB) and Cedric Murrel, CTUSAB president.
