Officers help out

THE National Fire Authority yesterday dispatched about 50 firefighters to parts of the Central Division to help with evacuation and emergency issues brought on by the bad weather.

Authority CEO John O'Connor said they were hoping the weather improved into today, but worried that it might not.

"All our teams are out in the field at the moment helping members of the community currently being affected by the weather," Mr O'Connor said.

"In Suva, there are three or four trucks moving around and helping people; in Nausori two trucks and in Valelevu there's one that's moving around Narere and all those areas."

He said the teams were tasked with helping those badly affected by the flash flooding.

"They are to do evacuation procedures, rescue services and a number of other types of works required as they see them."

"They've been working since the morning and we're trying to get as much done before it gets dark, then we have another team that will take over this evening so these guys can have a rest."
