Every fourth of May, the world pauses to pay tribute to the service of the brave men and women who tirelessly give their lives for their country.

This year, International Fire Fighter Day kicked off without a hitch at the Fire and Emergency Services Authority Headquarters in Apia yesterday.   

Fire-fighters and civil service men and women  turned up in their uniforms and sports shoes for the 10km Marathon.

 “We acknowledge the  support of the Government of Samoa, our partners, development partners, stakeholders, and all staff for their vital contribution to the growth of the authority to date,” a statement issued by S.F.E.S.A. said.
