PM's vision

Tevita Vuibau
Friday, January 24, 2014

THE National Disaster Management Office could soon relocate to the former Education Ministry headquarters building on Suva's Selbourne St.

NDMO director Manasa Tagicakibau said the development was in its initial stage since they've just identified the property.

He said the building would have to be renovated to configure the space and make it conducive to a national disaster management centre.

PSC permanent secretary Parmesh Chand said there was an appropriate provision in this year's budget for the repairs and fit-outs to the strategically-located building.

An Information Ministry statement said all this was being done to make Fiji disaster-ready.

"It is the Prime Minister's vision to set up a dedicated office for the National Disaster Management, given Fiji's resolve to deal decisively in preparing and tackling disasters and also in effectively dealing with all matters pertaining to after effects," the statement said.

The renovation work will commence as soon as the Education Ministry relocates its Examination Unit from the building to another suitable building by end of March.

The work is expected to be completed by the end of June.
