Photos to show the damage which has rendered the fire services inoperable were sent to media by the TCIAA. When fire service is down, it means the airport must be closed or limited to flights and this is happening just as South Caicos finally gets one of its long awaited for resorts, up and running. The TCIAA this morning said in a statement that, “The Authority views this as a calculated attempt to intentionally damage Airport’s property and cripple its operations. The Executives and Board are disappointed by this senseless act. Several engineers were immediately sent to repair the damage done to the fire trucks. Extensive works were done and the fire equipment is now recovered as it had to undergo extensive testing before usage.” Vandalism of official property is seemingly on the increase; in Grand Turk there are similar reports about personal cars and Government vehicles.The TCIAA has hired more security at the site.

4 Things To Know About Trick Or Treating In Wilmington

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Below are four things every Wilmington trick-or-treater should know!#1) No Set TimeWilmington has no “official” trick or treating hours.“We tell families that trick or treating starts when it gets dark, with the expectation that most families with young children will conclude that a couple of hours is enough time to be out gathering treats,” said Town Manager Jeff Hull. “To my knowledge, we have not had a problem with unofficial approach.”On Halloween, the sun is scheduled to set in Wilmington at 5:38pm.#2) Forecast Looks GoodAccording to the National Weather Service, Halloween will be mostly cloudy with a low around 47. Patchy fog is expected after 10pm. There’s a 30% chance of rain, but not until after 2am.#3) Best NeighborhoodsTwo areas in town — the Pouliot Place/Shawsheen Commons/Mink Run Road area and the Hathaway Acres area, off of Salem Street — are known as particularly popular places for trick or treaters.#4) Keep SafeBelow are safety tips from the Massachusetts State Fire Marshal:More children are hit by cars on Halloween than any other single day, so it’s important for children to be visible and to practice pedestrian safety.Children should carry a flashlight or glow sticks and costumes should be bright-colored or have reflective tape to highlight them.Drivers should use extra caution: drive more slowly and watch for children who may forget to cross at corners and use crosswalks.Keep decorations like cornstalks and leaves away from heat sources and lit candles. Switch to battery operated candles.Be sure all parts of costumes are labeled flame retardant.Costumes should not have trailing materials or tails long enough to cause falls.If a child is wearing a mask instead of make-up, make sure the eye holes are large enough to see through clearly.Make sure your home is well-lit inside and out and that there is a clear path to your door.Children under 12 should always be with an adult. It’s best to take little ones out early. If older children are going out without you, go over the ground rules first and set a curfew. Have them travel in a group and with a cell phone and flashlight.Remind youngsters to cross at crosswalks or corners and not to dart out between parked cars.Fireworks are dangerous and illegal in Massachusetts. The ban includes firecrackers, cherry bombs and party poppers.For more information on Halloween Safety, contact your local fire department or look at the Department of Fire Services website at http://www.mass.gov/dfs, type Halloween Safety in the search bar, or call the Public Fire Safety Education Hotline at 1-877-9-NO-FIRE.Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.
