The National Fire Authority is identi­fying priorities and resources need­ed to be able to put together a five-year strategic plan to guide it until 2022.

It held a one-day workshop involving 40 staff members at the Novotel Suva Lami Bay conference centre yesterday to map out the strategic plan.

NFA board chairman John O’Connor said after the completion of the workshop the NFA management and board would go back and draw up the 2018-2022 strategic plan.

“We have a come long way from the past five years and now it is the time to reassess where we are,” Mr O’Connor said.

He said they would compare the results of what they achieved according to the targets set for NFA in their current and planned strategic plan.

“My view on the strategic plan is to have something to guide us as we move forward in 2018 until 2022,” Mr O’Connor said.

“It is about identifying our priorities and resources that we have and resources we need to be able to attain our goal that we set ourselves from that workshop today.”

The plan included the building of fire stations in areas where there are develop­ments.

There were 18 fire stations around the country and the plan is to increase it to 21 by the end of the year.

“It is about contributing towards the NFA’s direction and we will involve our stakehold­ers so that they understand that we all con­tribute towards the plan in the areas that need focus and priority,” he said.
