The Guyana Fire Service (GFS), on Saturday,Hector Bellerin Arsenal Jersey UK, presented its strategic plan, which will be the guiding light of the organisation for the next five years.The strategic plan 2014-2019 was presented in the presence of Minister of Home Affairs, Clement Rohee, at Grand Coastal Inn, Le Ressouvenir, East Coast Demerara. It sets out the strategic goals that will be pursued over the next five years.The objectives and initiatives are intended to facilitate the achievement of these goals and they also offer insights into the critical imperatives, necessary to promote the successful execution of the first phase of the strategy’s implementation.Minister Rohee, during his address, spoke of the existence of the plan’s significance, noting that there must be a draft document, to guide the modernisation of the GFS over the next five years.Home Affairs Minister Clement RoheeMinister Rohee said that this plan puts the fire service within a context at a given point in time of its development, and draws upon all the experiences it has accumulated over the years,Dallas Keuchel Astros Jersey, and based on those experiences, it develops a vision for the future. “…and that vision is not sufficient, because that vision ought to be now formulated in a plan that is workable, durable  implementable … and it must have the capacity to take an organisation, with all its weaknesses and strengths, forward,Tom Barrasso Adidas Jersey, that is the significance of the plan that is presented,” Minister Rohee further noted.He said that if the Government is to modernise the disciplined services, it cannot do so in a fragmented manner; hence the reason for the GFS, the Guyana Police Force (GPF) and Guyana Prison Service (GPS), and the Home Affairs Ministry, each  having their individual strategic plan.Speaking on the importance of modernising this important sector, Minister Rohee said that there is no wall dividing these plans from each,Jung-ho Kang Jersey, noting that it is an integrated process, so as to better the service delivery of this very important sector. He however,Francisco Silva Jersey, noted that modernisation cannot only be viewed by the acquisition of building, equipment, and the increase in ranks of the GFS, but rather, it is the thought process that results in change.“What is the point of having all these new infrastructure, and we don’t believe in them,  or own them or have a passion for them … we are just fellow travellers,Thibaut Courtois Chelsea Jersey UK, because we are working in an institution, looking only at promotion…these are important things, but there must be some more attachment to the institutions in which we work. If there is a detachment, we will certainly not achieve the goals that we have set out,” Minister Rohee stressed.Fire Chief Marlon GentleSpeaking of the importance of the GFS’ name change to the Guyana Fire and Rescue Service, he said it is aimed at seeing the service enhancing its humanitarian service. However, when the name change was taken to the National Assembly, the Political Opposition opposed it.“We in this administration have demonstrated by ‘force of example’ that we are capable and confident of walking that walk, and that we put our money where our mouth is, and the fact that the Guyana Fire Service is where it is today, prior to 1992, is clear for everyone to see…I’m very happy to be associated with the progress of the Guyana Fire Service,” Minister Rohee said.The Home Affairs Minister reiterated that the plan is only one aspect of the GFS’ modernisation process, and that implementation is another critical issue.However, this transformation could not have been possible without the hard work of some key individuals, and Minister Rohee lauded Fire Chief, Marlon Gentle, for his contribution to the service over the years.Meanwhile, Gentle in his remarks, said that this plan is the vehicle that will take the GFS on that road to modernisation. To the ranks, Gentle said that they have a significant role to play in this modernisation process. Stakeholders were also urged to get involved. (GINA)
