Fiji’s National Fire Authority (NFA) has installed 130 new fire hydrants in the first quarter of this year.

NFA chief executive John O’Connor in a statement said 91 fire hydrants have been installed in the Central Division, 18 in the West and 21 in the North.

O’Connor said the completion of the second phase of the new fire hydrant installations will begin by the end of this month where they will install 86 fire hydrants

This will assist NFA to mitigate structural fires in the country.

“The lack of fire hydrants has always been NFA’s major drawback in the past when fire fighting especially in areas that have no fire hydrants near to the property fire scene," he said.

"Our fire-fighters travels longer distances to look for a fire hydrant and other static water sources to continue fighting the property fires when water in the fire truck runs out after the first line of attack and this greatly affects our effectiveness in controlling and extinguishing the fire.”

O’Connor said some of these fire hydrants have been installed in the rural areas and at the National Heritage sites in Levuka which consolidates NFA’s Strategic Roadmap for Fire Safety and Mitigation in Fiji.

He also acknowledges the Water Authority of Fiji’s support for assisting NFA to install the new fire hydrants.
