Stay away from flooded waters, Police warn

As some parts of the country are experiencing heavy downpours, the Fiji Police Force is pleading with the public to take necessary precautionary measures.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Operations (ACP) Livai Driu said they are working with the National Disaster Management Office and the Fiji Roads Authority in the sharing of information to get help to those in need, as reports of flash flooding are being received.

ACP Driu is cautioning drivers to take necessary precautions and avoid crossing flooded roads.

He is also pleading with parents and guardians to monitor their children.

“Children should avoid playing in flooded areas and supervision is crucial to avoid drowning or any other accident.”

“With today being World Water Safety Day, the main message is prevention is crucial, so keep children indoors, and every decision made should be based on safety.”
