Time off for relief workers

Maciu Malo
Tuesday, January 01, 2013

DISMAC officers conducting relief work in the Western Division have been released to spend New Year's Day with their families.

According to Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki, a skeleton staff would look after the daily operations and running of the office in the aftermath of Tropical Cyclone Evan.

He said the office would be back in full operation tomorrow.

"The first shipment of seedlings to the maritime region will start after the New Year as we want to give some government operations teams time to be with their loved ones," said Cdr Cawaki.

"We also want to give our staff a much-needed break since they have been busy conducting relief operations since immediately after the cyclone and also during Christmas.

"All officers are requested to be back at work on Wednesday because there is still a lot of work left to do to get people's lives back to normal," said Cdr Cawaki.
