SUPERVISION at evacuation centres should be prioritised, says Commissioner Northern Lieutenant Colonel Ilai Moceica.

He made the comments as six evacuation centres were activated yesterday in the province of Cakaudrove.

Speaking to heads of government departments in a briefing yesterday Lt-Col Moceica insisted that all evacuation centres needed to have a monitoring team.

"Evacuation centres need supervision. We need to ensure that our people at the evacuation centres are safe and have their supply of food and water."

"People moving to all evacuation centres need to bring in their own food ration and water," Lt-Col Moceica said.

He reminded the public to store water now as TC Evan may cause disruption water supply.

He also called on the Water Authority of Fiji in the north to have backup plans such as carting water to residents when supply was disrupted.

"If water supply is affected then we will tell the people the reasons and we should also organise carting of water."

"We all need to start planning our next course of action to ensure that assistance to the community remains," Lt-Col Moceica said.
