The transformation of the Cayman Islands Fire Service (CIFS) has been featured in this month’s International Fire Fighter Magazine.
The article includes an interview with Deputy Chief Fire Officers Brevan Elliott, Roy Charlton and Tina Ebanks conducted by Phil Martin, editor of UK Fire Magazine and looks at the journey of continuous improvement the whole service has recently been on.
“CIFS’ recognition in this way is testament to how far the team has come in the past few years and is incredibly inspiring to see. The Ministry of Home Affairs and Portfolio of the Civil Service have supported them through every step of the way and will continue to do so,” said Deputy Governor and Head of the Civil Service, Franz Manderson.
Following his visit to Grand Cayman earlier this year, Mr. Martin says in the article “During a relatively short time in CIFS, I experienced a clear and positive sense of an organization that knows where it needs to go along with a clear path to achievement and a genuine desire to be a World Class Fire and Rescue Service.”
Commenting on CIFS’ inclusion in the respected industry magazine, Chief Fire Officer, Paul Walker, QFSM said “The CIFS Senior Leadership Team have worked incredibly hard over the past few years to transition the service to world class status. The article encapsulates everything that myself and others are incredibly proud of. Deputy Chief Fire Officers Elliott, Charlton and Ebanks did a great job of representing CIFS on the world stage.”
