“Welcome, guys: This is your first day as new recruits,” Chief Fire Officer Zebalon McLean told a group of public officers on Tuesday during the Public Service Week Incredible Race.
The group had just arrived panting at the Road Town Fire Station, after having walked from the Road Town Public Library, where they had completed another task.
“What we are going to do now is we are going to give you a little quiz,” Mr. McLean told the participants, who were dressed in red shirts and represented the “Warriors” team from the Ministry of Education and Culture. “You are going to select the most appropriate answers and then I will mark you.”
Shortly after the group completed the quiz, Mr. McLean led them to the courtyard of the building, where they performed various tasks, including knocking down several cones with a water hose.
The race began at the Noel Lloyd Positive Action Movement Park, where participants received their first clue instructing them to walk to the Passport Office, where they filled out a passport form.
Other stops included the Department of Information and Public Relations and the Department of Information Technology.
The race was among several activities planned for Public Service Week, which is being held under the theme, “Serve from the Heart: Our Public Service, Our Week.”
