NFA Statistics for January-November 2016
December 31
15:28 2016

The National Fire Authority  (NFA), has attended to a total of 138 structural fires at the end of November, 2016. This is compared to a total of 127 structural fires at the end of December last year.

The increase in structural fires continues to be a major concern for the NFA as statistics reveal an increase in residential fires when compared to last year.

The major causes of these fires have been electrical related.

NFA believes that all media outlets have a major part to play in the promotion of fire safety awareness to the people of Fiji.

The promotion of simple fire safety messages daily throughout the year by all media outlets will go a long way in reaching out to everyone – young and old – on the need ensure fire safety at all times and the NFA will always be ready to support such initiatives.



As we enter into the New Year, we urge every person in this country – men, women and children – to be vigilant and to pay attention to fire safety messages because fire safety is everyone’s responsibilty!

From the National Fire Authority, we take this opportunity to wish you all a very prosperous and fire-safe 2017.
