Fighters test skills and knowledge

PROBATIONARY fire officers in the north yesterday took part in a refresher drill to help them gain more knowledge.

National Fire Authority (NFA) chief executive officer John OConnor said the drill was also to test officers skill levels and competence.

We usually have this drill when the officers have spent 10 months with NFA and this is how we evaluate their performances before officially welcoming them to the team, he said. We also have some volunteers from Taveuni, Savusavu and Labasa who are part of the training too.

Mr OConnor said the drill would also be conducted in the Western and Central divisions.

This is human capital training for our officers and its crucial because it will allow them to carry out their work more efficiently and smartly.

They will also be sitting for an internal assessment and later awarded with certificates in recognition of their performances, he said.
