STREET BEAT: Gas scare in Valery


Share post:

A GAS SCARE was the catalyst for a range of complaints from residents of the Valery high rise housing complex in Brittons Hill, St Michael, last weekend.

The initial situation involved the smell of gas which raised the alarm in more ways than one on Saturday after a resident tripped the emergency alarm which rang shrilly and continuously.

However, some residents who lived on the sixth floor said this too was a worry as they did not hear the alarm, so they were among the last to know what was happening.

One man, who did not give his name, said: “There was a gas smell about 5 p.m. We called the relevant authorities (the National Petroleum Corporation and the Barbados Fire Service) and two fire tenders came and evacuated the two buildings.” (CA)
