Twenty Fiji Sun staff have been told of the need to maintain fire safety procedures and to educate fellow staff on the need to take fire precautions within their workplace.

This message was relayed to the Fiji Sun staff members during a fire warden training at the National Fire Authority (NFA) headquarters at Walu Bay, Suva, yesterday.

NFA’s Sub-Officer Commercial Training Central Eastern Chris Tawakeniqila said one of the targets of the authority was to ensure that every workplace was provided the best possible fire training.

This, he said, was to enable staff of various organisations to take action during a fire or any other emergency.

“There seems to be a rise in company fires and other sort of emergency cases in workplaces and therefore the staff need to be trained to know how to manage any evacuation during an emergency,” Mr Tawakeniqila said.

“Through this training they will also be able to identify the fire risks at their workplace which will contribute to the minimising of fires in their various offices.”

As part of their training, the staff learned how to identify fire equipment, what to do during a motor vehicle fire, how to prevent false fire alarms and the different types of emergencies and evacuation.

The staff were presented with certificates following the completion of the one-day training.
