Fire and Emergency New Zealand sent two officers to visit and compile an assessment on the Fire Service in Papua New Guinea.
Area commanders Esitone Pauga and Ian Duncan departed Port Moresby last Friday after gaining valuable insight into the challenges and work of the PNG Fire Service.
Duncan thanked acting-chief fire officer Bill Roo and his management for hosting them while they carried out their study and assessment of the organisation.
He said from their one-week visit, they were able to gain valuable insights into the challenges and work that PNG fire service provided to the people and communities.
They were also able to exchange valuable expertise and experience during their visit.
“This kind of collaboration can be useful for both services to share new ideas and develop new ways of working,” Duncan said.
Roo said the visit by the two officers was made possible through an arrangement with the PNG High Commission in New Zealand.
“The purpose of the visit is for them to compile a pre-assessment report on how best Fire and Emergency New Zealand can come up with ways to help the Fire Service achieve its aims and objectives,” he said.
“Once the report is finalised and presented, we can look further at the possibility of establishing a long-term partnership with the New Zealand Fire and Emergency Service.”
