The Govt have announced two measures which deal with fire safety. The first is the publication of a new Part E to the Building Rules together with a supporting Approved Document. Part E deals exclusively with fire safety considerations when it comes to buildings and construction. The second measure is the publication of an Integrated Risk Management Plan. This is a three-year plan which builds on the foundations of risk reduction that the Government and the Gibraltar Fire and Rescue Service have already been delivering.
“The opening of two new buildings designed specifically for dementia care, which are new concepts in Gibraltar go much, much further than the completion of a building project,” commented Minister John Cortes.

As part of the ongoing Macaque Awareness Programme spearheaded by the Department of the Environment and Climate Change, a new App on Gibraltar’s Barbary Macaque has been launched by the Minister for the Environment and Climate Change, Dr. John Cortes.
