Fire Brigade response time in emergency situations...what do you think?

With the recent cases of fires in Fiji..many have been blaming the Fire Brigade for the damages in their homes. Many have blamed the response time of the brigade and in some current cases...911 calls have not been answered or were engaged.

In my opinion as a concerned member of the public, people just need to be aware of safety tips to follow to avoid fire disasters. Home fires are mainly caused by 3 things; Men, Women and Children. Men, Women and Children not doing the right thing.
We have been reminded again and again to be fire wise.
People just chose to ignore the advice from the NFA, it's when the incident had occured then people start pointing fingures and would not have the courage to take responsibility.
YES, IT IS ALWAYS THE CASE.......WE WOULD JUST LOVE TO FIND SOMEONE TO BLAME..RATHER THEN GET BUNRT IN THE FLAMES.
