Update: 12:32PM THERE are proactive measures in place for the Samoa Fire and Emergency Services (FESA) authority with plans to increase its emergency management capability with the introduction of qualified fire investigators.

Firefighters from Samoa will train with highly skilled Melbourne Fire Brigade's (MFB) fire investigation and analysis team in Melbourne, Australia in April this year.

FESA commissioner said the country is focused on maintaining a strong emergency services culture which has again been tested after the impact of Tropical Cyclone Gita last week.

"The work we are doing here continues with our commitment to increasing our emergency services capabilities to ensure we are best equipped into the future," he said.
