Jan. 31 Deadline For Registering Private Nursing Facilities
Owners of nursing homes, senior citizens??? homes and private hospitals are reminded that the annual registration fees to operate these facilities must be paid by January 31.
Owners must also be able to provide proof of 2015 licensing for nursing registration, liability insurance, health certificates for all staff and valid fire certificates.
Reminder Of Fire Inspections
Businesses owners and managers are reminded that all fire safety inspection certificates issued by the Barbados Fire Service are valid for one year only from the date of the inspection, and must therefore be renewed.
To renew certificates, businesses are asked to write a letter requesting the inspection, addressed to the Chief Fire Officer, Barbados Fire Service, Level 5, Post Office Building, Cheapside, St. Michael, at least two months in advance.
Acting Chief Fire Officer, Errol Maynard, is also reminding the public that the department may from time to time carry out inspections to ensure that businesses are still compliant as it relates to fire safety.
