The Ministry of Home Affairs represented by Permanent Secretary, Mae Thomas, on Wednesday signed a contract with Mohammed’s Enterprise for the construction of the new Guyana Fire Service (GFS) headquarters building.
The signing was witnessed by the Minister of Home Affairs, Robeson Benn. The new GFS headquarters will be erected on a site on Homestretch Avenue, Georgetown at a cost of $614M.
Construction is set to start no later than December 1, 2021, with completion expected in 14 months. “Relocation of the Guyana Fire and Ambulance Service will help increase the emergency response timings given that they will be away from the heavily congested Stabroek environment,’ Minister Benn stated.
