The National Fire Authority (NFA)recorded 10 home fires around Fiji in the month of July.
NFA sees this as a concern to the authority as most of the fire incidents that occurred could have been easily avoided if members of the public just took simple preventative actions.
NFA chief executive John O’Connor in a statement said he is concerned with the care free attitude by the members of the community in not taking fire safety seriously despite the community awareness and continuous advice given by NFA.
Members of the community continue to have the false presumption that fires will not happen to them and do not take the necessary simple actions to prevent fires.
O’Connor wishes to reiterate the authority’s plea to the members of the community to take fire safety seriously and not assume that a fire will not happen to their property.
“Property fires result in huge losses to the families annually and the long-term emotional damage to victims and their loved ones is incalculable.”
He said it only takes minutes for a house to fill with black smoke and become engulfed with flames.
O’Connor added that in the event of a fire, every second counts and family must always be prepared.
