University of the South Pacific student Janet Kerni says she is glad that a tsunami siren is in the Laucala Campus.

She made the remarks after the National Disaster Management Office (NDMO) installed nine tsunami sirens which have an acoustic range of 1.2km.

They are located at Water Authority of Fiji – Kinoya Sewerage Plant, FINTEL, RFMF Officers Training School in Vatuwaqa, My Suva Picnic Park, Government Training Centre in Nasese, iTaukei Lands and Fisheries Commission Rooftop in Nasova, Civic Carpark Rooftop in Suva, Government Shipping Services in Walu Bay, USP Lower Campus and Lami Town.

“The siren gives warning to people to start moving away from the danger places and it gives people time to prepare,” said Ms Kerni.

“As we all know Fiji has always had Tsunami warning and it needed siren installation in places to give warning faster to a large audience at once.” Edited by Ranoba Baoa
