The National Fire Authority (NFA) firefighters were presented with Certificate of Appreciation by the American Embassy in Fiji at the NFA headquarters in Suva last Friday.

The certificate was presented by the American Embassy regional security officer in Suva, Joseph Brooks on behalf of the US Ambassador Judith Cefkin.

While presenting the certificates Mr Brooks conveyed the sincere appreciation of Ambassador Cefkin to the firefighters for their hard work and service to the community.

He also conveyed the Ambassador’s praise for the progress the NFA has made in its service delivery and her wishes of success for the firefighters.

In September last year, the NFA Suva Fire Team attended to a fire at the American Ambassador’s residence and quickly put out the fire that started in the kitchen area, saving the Ambassador’s residence.

Chief fire officer Qionilau Moceitai, who had led the firefighting team that day, said they were really motivated by what the American Ambassador said.

“The NFA welcomes and appreciates such feedbacks by the members of the community as it continues to uplift its service delivery to the nation.

“Such feedbacks by the members of the community motivates and encourages the firefighters to further excel in their firefighting careers,” Mr Moceitai said.
