Health awareness

Salaseini Moceiwai
Tuesday, June 17, 2014

APART from just spreading the gospel of a crime-free society, the Duavata Northern Crime Prevention carnival is also an event to increase awareness on healthy lifestyles.

The ongoing week-long carnival is a smoke-free one where smokers are required to smoke outside Subrail Park grounds one and two.

Carnival chairman Satish Kumar said while their focus was on crime-prevention, they also wanted to play a part in promoting healthy living.

"We have empowered some of the youths and security officers, and their jobs are to ensure that smokers do not smoke within the park boundaries," he said.

"The officials went through some training. Those found smoking within the non-smoking areas will be warned and directed outside.

"If they still defy such warning, police personnel will step in."

Mr Kumar said the personnel would exercise law and order on those who failed to adhere to the smoke-free initiative.
