How to Prevent Dengue Fever

… pages 8 & 9

Message

from Town Council Vice-Chairman
One Bite… One Victim. That could become the aedes mosquito’s hit rate should we become complacent. Despite continuous announcements and public education by the National Environment Agency (NEA), the severity of the dengue situation has still not gotten through to many. The government agencies and Town Councils have intensified their anti-mosquito breeding operations in the public and common areas of the estate. These coordinated actions have greatly reduced the number of mosquito breeding sites. However, we are still encountering cases of mosquito breeding in homes. Residents therefore have a vital role to play. We have to be responsible and take the required preventive measures to eliminate mosquito breeding in our homes. The best defence against Dengue Fever is to prevent the breeding of the aedes mosquito. We have to be vigilant. Be responsible for your property and items, and protect your family members and loved ones by informing them of the dangers of Dengue Fever and the relevant actions you can take to prevent mosquito breeding. All we are required to do are simple things. For example, flower pots displayed along the common corridors or outside units are popular mosquito breeding sites. Remember to pour away the stagnant water that has accumulated in the base plate. Also, your bamboo pole holders are a favourite spot for these blood-suckers. Please cover the pole holders with plastic caps. This issue of the Town Council’s newsletter has useful information about preventing mosquito breeding and Dengue Fever. Turn to pages 8 and 9 to learn how you can identify potential breeding spots in your home and the preventive measures. Let us all work towards a dengue free estate. Hri Kumar Nair Vice-Chairman Bishan-Toa Payoh Town Council

Repairs & Redecoration Works and Cyclical Works coming your way All HDB residential blocks are scheduled for Repairs and Redecoration works (R&R) to keep them in good condition, and for the services to function efficiently and problem free. The Town Council is responsible for the maintenance of some blocks in the GRC. Thus, detailed planning is essential to ensure R&R works are carried out smoothly and with minimal disruption and inconvenience to residents. Due to the nature of works involved, we are mindful of your safety and will do our best to barricade the affected areas, and keep you updated. Thus, The Town Council seeks the understanding and co-operation of residents to inform your family members and advise your children to stay away from the work sites. We appreciate your support to ensure a smooth completion of the R&R.
