Radios Silent for Moyle

In a mark of respect and remembrance for the late speaker of the Legislative Assembly, Hon. Edna Marie Moyle, OBE, JP, all emergency and first responder services across the Cayman Islands observed a minute of full radio silence on the Cayman Islands Government radio network system, which consist of the Fire, Emergency Response (911), RCIPS and Prison Service. The radio silence coincided with the 9am ceremonial flag lowering.

“This is the first time in our country's history that full radio silence was observed” said Mr. Eric Bush, Chief Officer in the Portfolio of Internal and External Affairs. Mr. Bush expressed condolences, on behalf of all public safety personnel, to Mrs. Moyle’s family in recognition of her many years of dedicated service to the Civil Service and people of the Cayman Islands. “Our sincere thoughts and prayers are with Mrs. Moyle's family during this difficult time” shared Mr. Bush.

Mr. Bush also noted that in many countries, radio silence is considered the utmost demonstration of respect and remembrance for a passing of a Senior Public Official. He commends the Department of Public Safety Communications for initiating the tribute
