In light of the current weather situation, the Fiji Police Force has requested members of the public to adhere to weather advisories and to stay clear of flooded areas.
Director Operations SSP Abdul Khan says the recent drowning case is an unfortunate reminder of the need to be mindful of your environment and the threat it can have on your safety.
Police officers were deployed to areas that experienced flash flooding yesterday and are also on standby to be deployed when the need arises.
SSP Khan is urging parents and guardians to closely monitor their children’s movements and to stay clear of flooded areas and avoid swimming in creeks and rivers.
SSP Khan stresses police needs everyone’s support and cooperation to avoid further loss of life.
