THE National Fire Authority (NFA) is trying to secure land for the construction of the proposed Dreketi, Nabouwalu and Seaqaqa fire stations on Vanua Levu.
Authority CEO John O'Connor yesterday said land talks were still in progress with authorities responsible.
"We are still holding talks with authorities for the proposed projects at the moment and nothing has been finalised yet," Mr O'Connor said.
"The total cost of the projects is also yet to be determined because plans are still at its preliminary stages. That's the update at the moment but the authority is working towards delivering efficient and excellent services to the people."
Meanwhile, Mr O'Connor said two new fire trucks had been proposed for the North.
The two were part of the eight trucks bought through the $450,000 grant to the NFA by the government.
"We are yet to confirm the locations of where the trucks will be stationed in the North and right now, the trucks are still here in Suva. Once everything is finalised, we will transport them across."
It was earlier reported the trucks each have the potential to carry 2000 litres of water.
The NFA now has 48 fire trucks in its fleet.
