Saluting Our Heroes and Workers

BARP President Marilyn Rice BowenBARP President Marilyn Rice-Bowen

This year, both National Heroes Day and May Day provide opportunity for us to reflect on the contribution of our National Heroes and workers to nation-building. Our Heroes were dedicated and steadfast in their resolve to the cause of making Barbados a better and more equitable place for all its people.

On this year’s celebration of National Heroes day, Barbados continues its struggle to contain the COVID-19 virus which has unfortunately claimed 44 lives, the majority being seniors.

We are also trying to overcome the ash fall from the eruption of the La Soufriere volcano in St Vincent. For many, this has been a struggle.

The senior citizens of this country know what it means to deal with challenges because that has been their life story. But Barbados has been the better for it as there has been commitment, respect for family, friends and community; they valued education and honoured their forefathers. They did not despair and Barbados is a better place because of their contributions.

We only need to look to our National Heroes for inspiration on why we must never give up when things are tough.

As we honour the work and achievements of our national heroes and all workers, let us continue focusing on being excellent in all our endeavours. This can be a worthy contribution to nation-building and a way of honouring their legacy.

Today there will be no fun and frolic as we celebrate Heroes day, but time to call a senior person, simply to say hello and wish them well.

You may be able to do something more tangible by removing some of the ash from in front of their home.

These are ways we can honour the work and achievements of our national heroes; let us continue focusing on being excellent in all our endeavours, a worthy way to uphold the legacy of our National heroes.

SSA Collecting Bagged Ash Starting Wednesday

Barbados Government Information Service

Government will be providing assistance with the removal of ash from communities through the Sanitation Service Authority (SSA).

To this end, members of the public are asked to note that a roster has been created for the collection of the ash.

Starting Wednesday, April 21, the SSA will begin removing the bagged ash in the parishes of St. Lucy and St. Peter. The next day, Thursday, April 22, they will be in St. Philip and Christ Church.

On Friday, April 23, they will visit St. John and St. George. The next collection day will be Monday, April 26, when the SSA teams go into St. Andrew and St. Thomas.

On Tuesday, April 27, they will target St. James and St. Joseph and will wrap up the following day, Wednesday, April 28, in the parish of St. Michael.

The collection of bagged ash will take place from 7:00 a.m. to noon each day.

Persons are advised to ensure that the ash is placed in crocus, sand or feed bags and that it is situated near but not among the regular household waste.

They are also urged to keep the ash from getting wet as it becomes heavy and difficult to lift when saturated. It should not be placed in skips since it also makes those receptacles too heavy.

In order to make sure the ash is collected on removal days, persons are asked to call the SSA’s hotlines at 262-5326 or 262-5327. They must state their names, locations and contact numbers.

Ministry Of Health Tips On Dealing With Ash Fall
www.gisbarbados.gov.bb  
Barbados Government Information Service

 

In the event of ash fall on Barbados from the La Soufriere volcano in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the Ministry of Health and Wellness has issued precautionary tips for persons to manage their respiratory health.

The Ministry has advised persons who suffer from respiratory conditions, such as asthma, and eye allergies to have their medications on hand at all times.

Persons have also been encouraged to wear face masks to provide relief and prevent exposure to relatively non-hazardous contaminants.

The Ministry of Health added that outdoor activity should be minimised, and persons are advised to stay indoors.  Windows and doors should be kept closed to stop ash from entering buildings.

Meanwhile, persons who need to work outside should wear protective clothing, such as long sleeves and long pants, to protect the skin, and googles to protect their eyes.

It has also advised motorists to drive with caution and to use lights and car wiper systems if visibility becomes difficult.
