The VI Fire and Emergency Medical Services announces the temporary closure of the Emile C. Berry Fire Station (Echo Company) effective March 20, 2023, through March 27, 2023. During the closure, coordination from neighboring stations will provide services in response to emergencies in the affected area.
Ongoing improvements are being done at the station to enhance safety and functionality. The station has suffered from drainage issues for some time. In an organized effort to resolve the problem, in collaboration with the Department of Public Works, the closure will serve to rectify the matter. "The Emile C. Berry Fire Station plays a crucial role in serving our community. The VI Fire and Emergency Medical Services is dedicated to maintaining the highest level of service for our residents. We thank the community for their understanding and support during this period," states Jonelle-Alexis Jackson, Public Information Officer for the Virgin Islands Fire and Emergency Medical Services.
