Police, Fire service and Hospital
The hospital has been receiving continous help from various sources since the hurricane – including the Indian government aid programme, PLH, Coco Point Trust, local individuals and the Council. It is now partly re-built and able to function with wards for most local emergencies, including a birthing suite. It has a dedicated pharmacy with most essential medication available. We have an excellent team headed by Dr Jeremy Deazle.
Serious emergencies are flown to Antigua. A Barbudan dentist visits when possible but we need equipment and support for this including a more comfortable dentist chair!
Contact details are –
The old police station (below right) is in the middle of the village but has not been repaired since Irma so our small police force on Barbuda operate out of a house.
Neil George – (+268) 726 3063
Sergeant Thomas – (+268) 464 3940
Barbuda also has a diligent fire service on duty at the airport for every plane landing and for other services.
