Volunteers

The Authority continued to operate fire brigades at various locations detailed below. Our Ffirefighters are categorised into three classes, the FULL TIMETIME FIREFIGHTERS, the AUXILLARY VOLUNTEERS, and then there are the VOLUNTEERS.

The FULL TIME FIREFIGHTERS and the AUXILLARY VOLUNTEERS attend regular drills and training and are paid for the drill hours and for attending to emergency response. They are also paid a regular monthly sum as a retainer. Volunteers however are those who offer their time and services for free.

All volunteers are registered with the Fiji National Provident Fund and the Authority makes it's share of the contribution. Additionally, all firemen are insured against Personel Accident up to the limits prescribed under the Workers Compensation Act.

The Volunteer Stations are :

  • NAVUA 10 Volunteers
  • LEVUKA 15 Volunteers
  • RAKIRAKI 2 Volunteers
  • SEAQAQA 5 Volunteers
  • TAVUA 3 Volunteers
  • SIGATOKA 10 Volunteers
The total number of volunteers is 45 and a new Volunteer Station has also been located in Pacific Harbour with some volunteers.

Our volunteers also go through the same training that our firemen go through, fire fighting skills, fire preventions, life savings, equipment maintenance and other safety drills that will equiped them while on duty.

Our volunteers are also paid allowances for their services.
