THE National Fire Authority is working with the Education Ministry to install fire extinguishers in schools.

Authority CEO John O'Connor said they expected to come up with some findings by the end of the month.

"The plans to install these extinguishers in schools were brought up last year following a spate of fires involving schools," he said.

"We will put in place a special program for this in which we will work with education officers to get this done because this is for the safety of our children."

Mr O'Connor said all schools in the country, including the rural ones, were expected to be covered in this draft plan.

Last year alone, four schools experienced fires — Queen Victoria School, Sigatoka Methodist High School, Mount St Mary's School (Nadi) and Dudley Intermediate School.
