Calls to improve the fire service were echoed on the floor of parliament by East New Britain Governor, ToBaining Junior.
This follows the loss of properties during a fire this year in Kokopo East New Britain Province. The fire ravished key income generating assets like big rooster and Tropicana.
Tropicana Limited was the biggest business in the province, an active player in the province’s economy, assisting other organizations where it could.
Tropicana has over five hundred employees from cashiers to tailoring. For those who used to work in the old shopping mall, they will be recruited again to work once the new mall is constructed
Lae also had a wave of properties burnt last year including the only highrise building at down town.
Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill said the fire department received a large sum of funding in the 2014 budget allocation. He said the department is slowly seeing signs of improvement.
