Mayor Sangster heaps praise on Japanese intern for fire trucks
Chairman of the St Elizabeth Municipal Corporation Derrick Sangster has a picture in his mind of Japanese intern Shingo Oba for an unlikely reason. According to Sangster, who is also mayor of Black River, his sharpest memory of Oba, who volunteered his services in St Elizabeth in 2014-16, was of a man “who hardly spoke”.
However, during his two years assigned to the disaster preparedness office at the municipal corporation in Black River, Oba — a practising fireman in Japan — didn’t need many words to make a big difference.
