Fire

Install PFAs for better fire safety urges NFA

January 13, 2019 8:31 am

Private fire alarms are a good system in an effort to better manage fire hazards and in many instances preventing a disaster.

According to National Fire Authority Chief Executive Manasa Lesuma, it has saved numerous lives and properties as it actually alerts fire wardens or those responsible before the fire escalates to an uncontrollable stage.

Lesuma says more than three hundred PFA units have already been installed in buildings and the NFA is hoping more Fijians acquire the technology.

“We get notified immediately through the system and the system is such if there is no one at home or no one actually in the building ,it actually activates when a fire happen and we are automatically informed through the system.”

Lesuma had also confirmed that the cost for the installation of PFAs have been reduced from $5000 to $2900 effective from the beginning of this year.
