THE National Fire Authority (NFA) is working with the National Disaster Management Office to assist the Cyclone Evan-affected communities and municipalities with their rehabilitation work.

Authority CEO John O'Connor said firefighters were working with the NDMO and town councils to assist in the early return to normalcy.

"In Seaqaqa, the NFA Labasa assisted in the carting of drinking water to affected areas and in the Western Division in Sigatoka, Nadi, Lautoka, Ba, Tavua and Rakiraki, the NFA officers are assisting town councils in cleaning the streets after military officers and Fiji Corrections Service removed tree branches and debris", Mr O'Connor said.

The NFA CEO also reminds members of the community to take extra and be mindful of fire safety at their home.

"As some areas are without electricity at home, members of the community are advised to be mindful of fire safety when using candles, kerosene lanterns and mosquito coils at home.

"People are advised to not to leave these fire ignition sources unattended and they must always remember to extinguish these fire ignition sources before going to bed."
