PM: Expand fire services widely

Update: 3:29PM IT IS vital that we make the response services provided by the National Fire Authority available as widely as possible throughout the country.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama reasoned a fire could strike at anytime and anywhere.

He said for too long, those services by the NFA had been restricted to urban centres, leaving rural communities vulnerable.

“But that was not a reality that my Government was prepared to accept,” he said.

He said progress was being made but there was still work to be done.
