KUWAIT: Security forces recently launched an inspection campaign in Nugra, which resulted in arresting 68 people including two wanted on criminal charges, six for debts, 11 absconders, five in violation of residency laws, 15 on drug-related cases and 25 for not carrying any IDs.

In collaboration with EQUATE Petrochemicals Company, the Kuwait Fire Service Directorate (KFSD) recently launched an awareness campaign titled ‘We Want You Safe,’ warning campers of the potential dangers during the camping season, said colonel Khalil Al-Amir, who noted that camp-related accidents had dropped by 26 percent in 2016-2017 compared to the previous camping season. Amir pointed out that campers happen to leave flammable objects unattended causing fires. EQUATE’s Health, Security, Safety and Environment Director Mohammad Harbi Al-Shemmari stressed that EQUATE continues to protect campers by ensuring their safety.
