The National Disaster Management Office has recommended that more drills are needed for students and teachers of FNU and USP.

This comes after a total of 2,361 people participated in a Tsunami Drill that was held at the University of the South Pacific, Fiji National University Laucala Bay Campuses and the Fiji Sports Council.

It says that some areas that needed to be improved include more awareness for students and teachers to familiarise themselves on their Tsunami Evacuation Plan that the schools have provided.

The NDMO believes that more wardens are to be allocated in the future to look after the different areas within their agencies adding that this will assist with the command and control of evacuees to their safe zones.

Fijivillage had noticed at the Tsunami Drill that while majority of students from the FNU and the USP campuses along Laucala Bay took note of the Tsunami evacuation exercise, there were some students who just stood back and gazed with no sign of effort to go with the drill.
