FIRE and life safety was the main focus of a recent awareness training program carried out by the Shangri-La's Fijian Resort and Spa.
The training session was held at Cuvu District School and live training sessions and practical demonstrations were showcased for the students.
The resort's fire and life safety manager Nemani Delaibatiki said the resort deemed fire and life safety as well as security a high priority.
"Through this training, we would like to share the knowledge we have so that people in our surrounding community are in a much better position to help themselves in the event that a fire occurs," Mr Delaibatiki said.
"We hope that through this training, as well as through collaboration with the National Fire Authority of Fiji, we will be able to build a team of fire wardens in our schools and raise awareness about prevention as well among the community."
Resort general manager Michael Monks said they hoped to encourage and spread the message regarding fire and life safety to the community.
"We have been fortunate enough that the Coral Coast family of hotels is now registered with the Ministry of Education, which now allows us to carry out training for such critical life skills," Mr Monks said.
Apart from Cuvu District School, similar training programs are expected to be held at Nadroumai Primary School and Sigatoka Special School.
