Cayman Islands Fire Service Wednesday Update on South Sound Incident

The Fire Service reports that checks of a South Sound site used to store tyre derived aggregate (TDA) showed no sign of smoke or fire this morning (Wednesday, 26 September 2018).

The site owners are currently in the process of installing a water sprinkler system which will provide a constant water supply on top of the stack.

While this measure will provide some cooling, the Fire Service is also requiring that the large stack be broken up into smaller stacks, and the site owners have committed to exploring options to achieve this in the immediate future.

The Fire Service will shortly issue a statement outlining the steps that it is taking in tandem with the site owners and other owners of similar sites used to store this type of aggregate to ensure that all necessary precautions are taken to prevent future fire hazards.

It will only issue further updates on the status of the current incident if the site once again shows signs of smoke or fire.

Cayman Islands Fire Service Tuesday Update on South Sound Incident

From Cayman Islands Fire Service

A Cayman Islands Fire Service crew today (Tuesday 25 September 2018) reported there is no sign of smoke or fire at a site used to store tyre derived aggregate in South Sound.

The fire officers did record hot areas on the surface of the aggregate with a thermal imaging camera. In the absence of smoke they noted that this could be explained by the sun as much as by any deep seated compression areas.

As a precaution the hot areas have been marked and are being cooled by the site owner.

The Fire Service will check the site again this evening.

Maersk containership arrested in Tunisia

BY CHRIS DUPIN From Akerican Shipper

The vessel gave asylum to 113 refugees when it was en route from Malta to Libya in June.

Maersk Line said that one of its ships, the Alexander Maersk, was detained in the Port of Sfax, Tunisia, on Sept. 10.

“This is related to different claims cases which we are looking into and have informed our insurance company about. We cooperate with all relevant authorities to resolve the matter as quickly as possible,” said Maersk.

The website Shipping Watch said that the arrest was made on behalf of shippers which “claim to have lost money on the Maersk Honam fire.”

The Alexander Maersk is a Danish flagged container vessel built in 1998. It has a nominal container capacity of 1068 TEU. It is deployed on a Seago Line service in the Eastern Mediterranean.

The same ship was in the news earlier in this year when it rescued more than 100 maritime migrants and had to wait three days off of Sicily before being allowed to come to port and let the migrants disembark.

Since yesterday (Friday, 21 September 2018) the Cayman Islands Fire Service has been monitoring an incident in South Sound involving tyre derived aggregate.

It can now confirm that as of today (Saturday, 22 September), the seat of the fire has been dug out and fully extinguished. In addition the fire pumps have been returned to the station.

At no time did the fire pose a danger to persons or property in the area.

The site will be checked again in the morning (Sunday, 23 September).

The Cayman Islands Fire Service is currently attending a mound of recycled tyre-derived aggregate on property at the rear of Vela Condos on South Sound Road.

Fire service officials report there is no visible flame and very little smoke at the site. They confirm that the situation is under control and poses no danger to surrounding property or residents.

The aggregate is being damped down, dug out and redistributed in the area.

The Fire Service will cease operations later this evening and a watch will be in place throughout the night to observe for heat sources.  A follow-up assessment will be carried out in the morning.

Camana Bay October Events

There’s always something happening…

This October, Camana Bay is hosting activities and events to celebrate and encourage positive health, both mental and physical, at every age. Start off the month by showing your support for a good cause with the Anti-Bullying Fair, presented by the Family Resource Centre and Hurley’s Media on Saturday, Oct. 6. Children will be encouraged to showcase their creative work to raise awareness of the social effects of bullying in school and all its forms. Families are also encouraged to stay fit for a cause by taking part in the Mental Health Walk and Talk, presented by the Alex Panton Foundation on Wednesday, Oct. 10, and the Save Our Youth (SOY) Monster Dash on Saturday, Oct. 20. October is marked globally as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and everyone is invited to participate in the annual Pilates for Pink, run by ENERGY Essential Fitness.

Shoppers’ Night Out is back this year, happening on Thursday, Oct. 18 with a night of special offers and promotions for participating shops and restaurants in Camana Bay. Shopper will enjoy music, food, refreshments and chances to win raffle prizes all night long! Late-Night Shopping at Camana Bay will kick off the same night, with shops staying open until 8 p.m. on Thursdays from Oct. 18 until the holiday season ends, making it easier than ever to sneak in those after-work errands and pick up those gifts and supplies for the weekend.

We can’t leave the month of October without a Halloween-themed family event. On Wednesday, Oct. 31, Camana Bay will host Halloween on the Big Screen on the Crescent. This year the public will have the opportunity to vote, through Camana Bay’s social media, to choose which film will be shown that night!
