Guam – Fire watches remain in place for one government agency and a contractor for GDOE.
According to Guam Fire Department spokesman Kevin Reilly, the Department of Revenue and Taxation remains on Fire Watch.
In March, the DRT was placed on notice of hazard and fire watch as a result of an inoperable fire alarm and fire suppression system but it appears that resolving the issue immediately is out of the department’s hands.
Reilly said,”The fire protection company hired by the building owner is making great progress. Some components that are custom built have been ordered.”
Also in the hot seat is Sodexo. GFD issued a stop order against the food contractor Tuesday, ceasing operations at Southern High School.
Reilly said the stop order was issued against Sodexo for failing to maintain fire protection systems and hood and duct maintenance for a couple of years.
As of Wednesday, the stop order was lifted and Sodexo has been placed on fire watch as Reilly said Sodexo has hired a professional contractor to correct the issues.
