The Fiji Police Force has called on parents to pay attention to and consider the safety of their children while being billeted at evacuation centres.

This comes after a four-year-old boy fell from the second storey of the Nadi Technical College, a building that was used as an evacuation centre during TC Keni.

Commissioner of Police Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho said this was worrying because they worked hard to get families out of harm’s way to keep them safe and then such incidents took place.

“We call on parents and guardians to look after their young ones when they are there and even when they are moving around,” Brigadier-General Qiliho said.

He pleaded with parents to take responsibility for their children and ensure their safety.

Brigadier-General Qiliho confirmed that the child was admitted in hospital.
