THE Fiji Police Force has beefed up its operations in the country for Tropical Cyclone Evan.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said all divisional commanders had been briefed to have their disaster management teams on standby. "We are closely monitoring the weather situation and all arms of operation have been briefed to deploy capabilities if and when the need arises," Ms Naisoro said.

She advised members of the public to adhere to the weather advisories and do not attempt to venture out if advice says otherwise.

"This was apparent earlier this year when majority of the drowning cases recorded was a result of the flooding and adverse weather experienced in the Western Division. We do not want a repeat of what has happened," she said.
