Consultancy: Workplace-based Training for Papua New Guinea Fire Service
Purpose
This submission proposes a consultancy to prepare and guide proposals for inception of a program of in-service training for the Papua New Guinea Fire Service (PNGFS). Parts of the program will also be offered as relevant to other government and in-house emergency services within Papua New Guinea (PNG) and to fire and emergency services among the Pacific Island Nations.
The proposed training will provide the competencies required for objectives of the PNGFS Strategic Development Plan 2010-2015. These objectives including extension of PNGFS activities to:
Define and cover wider needs for emergency cover in each service area;
Provide an increased emphasis on community education and building and site regulation for fire safety;
Improve partnerships with other emergency services, building and business owners, building occupiers, and regulatory bodies for community safety;
Extends services from urban areas adjacent to present fire stations across each province, and across provinces now without fire cover by increased community education regulatory activities.
The training will be predominantly work-placed based, and accredited into the National Qualifications Framework, for awards from Certificate to Diploma, and eventually Advanced Diploma and Degree levels.
Curriculum materials and curricula offered by members of the Australasian Fire and Emergency Authorities Council will be a key resource, as will their use of teaching methods.
Accreditation and teaching support will be given through institutional partnership with a recognised training or higher education institution in Papua New Guinea.

The partner institution will be chosen on the basis of its successful record of:
provision and support of flexible mode delivery of training and higher education;
academic quality assurance and promotion of the curriculum and teaching;
Institutional partnership, whether through incorporation, affiliation or franchising; and
Partnership with and adaptation of materials and curricula from Australasian sources.

The proposed training will focus on mapping and reducing area, building and site risk; planned and co-ordinated command and control of response to incidents; and urban search and rescue. It also includes ancillary competencies such as media management.
B1 Geophysical Background
PNG poses a very distinct challenge for disaster risk reduction and response. PNG has a combination of mountains, low lands, large rivers, and isolated islands with poor land, sea and air transport. Many islands are low lying and threatened ...
