Disaster management boost

THEIR knowledge of responding proactively towards disasters has been further boosted after attending a three-day disaster management training session in Labasa this week.

And now the participants, mainly government officials and key stakeholders, have a better understanding of how to tackle the challenges faced during a disaster.

The participants had a chance to learn more about how an emergency operation works, handling complaints and the roles they play during a disaster.

Acting divisional planning officer northern Uraia Rainima said the training was necessary to ensure the North was better prepared for future disaster events.

"Ultimately, we want to ensure that the people are safe and loss incurred during a disaster is significantly reduced," Mr Rainima said.
