By TEVITA VUIBAU

Update: 4:35PM THE National Fire Authority met with stakeholders in a public consultation workshop today to conduct a review of the National Fire Services Act 1994.

The review, the first since 1994, aims to amend the legislation taking into account the various roles which are now under the authority's responsibilities.

In his opening statement, Local Government Permanent Secretary Samuela Namosimalua said the NFA had developed from a mere fire and rescue response agency to an all inclusive Emergency Management Service.

It is expected after a nation wide consultation, the NFA will be able to formulate and implement a new fire prevention legislation that will take into account the relevant changes.
