UTC suffers power outage

 

On October 2nd 2013, the Unit Trust Corporation undertook an emergency evacuation that was triggered by the fire alarm at the Port of Spain Head Office.

Smoke was seen emanating from the northern side of the basement following a power outage and subsequent power surge.

In keeping with our safety procedures, the emergency services were alerted and following rigorous inspection of the building by the Trinidad and Tobago Fire Service and T&TEC, the officers advised it was safe to enter the building.
