The Minister of Police – Hon. Mateni Tapueluelu along with Australia’s HC to Tonga – H.E Adrian Morisson last week officially inspected assistance made by the Australian government to the Fire Department & Emergency Services.

The assistance included two fire trucks, safety gear and equipments among others.

The Fire & Emergency Services Commissioner – Viliami Tu’ihalamaka says they are happy with the assistance received as they cannot afford such assistance.

Tu’ihalamaka adds, the assistance will greatly help with their operations especially in times of fire incidents where they can respond quickly and effectively.

The assistance was worth about $50 thousand pa’anga.
