Prime Minister and Member of Parliament for Cat Island, Rum Cay and San Salvador, the Hon. Philip Davis attended the commissioning and handover ceremony for a new ambulance for the island of San Salvador.
Mr. Davis told those in attendance, “when I grew up in Old Bight, Cat Island my grandparents would say ‘its better safe than sorry,’ that being said, we’ll have the ambulance here, it may never be used and we hope it’ll never be used cause it is used then we know there is some tragedy, some affliction or infirmity that’s occurring in our community. But to have it because if it does happen if you don’t have it then what is the result.”
Chief Councillor, Renard Storr also spoke at the event saying, “gone are the days where people are being placed on the back of a truck. I say we’re now in the 21st century and I say to God be the glory for great things he have done.”
The Prime Minister also foreshadowed the opening of a clinic in United Estates.
