Republic of Military Forces Cyclone Contingency Plan In Place

The Republic of Military Forces (RFMF) has already put in place its cyclone contingency plan.

Chief-of-Staff Colonel Ratu Jone Kalouniwai yesterday said that all units had been briefed of the plan.

He said the nation was in the cyclone season and the RFMF was prepared for it.

Often, in cyclones the National Disaster Controller will ask RFMF to second Logistics Officers from RFMF’s Engineers or Logistics units to National Emergency Operations Centre (NEOC) to reinforce the logistics operations.

Meanwhile Ratu Jone said Commander Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) – Rear Admiral Viliame Naupoto would soon announce the RFMF stand down period for members to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s Eve with families.

During this period, he said there will be soldiers working in all camps around the country.

However, he said when there was a cyclone those on stand down would be recalled back to the camp to help out.

Peacekeeping

When asked about the peacekeepers he said they were all well in their stations.

He said the rotation had been completed and the new ones had settled in well in their work areas.

In Sinai he said the shift from the north to the south base camp was good especially with what was happening in the north.He said the soldiers in south Sinai were safe and were closely monitoring the activities in the north.

Ratu Jone said the RFMF was now concentrating on the RFMF Band Military Tattoo on December 08.
