Cayman Islands Government

Safety First

Remember: driving and speaking or texting on a hand-held cell phone is against the law in the Cayman Islands now.

This week (Monday, 19 December) GIS Spotlight zooms in on holiday safety, pulls in some fundraising action and re-visits historical vignettes.

Make sure you remain safe this holiday season. To help make this happen, learn about the RCIPS' Operation Christmas Cracker, the safety initiative aimed at keeping you safe in your homes, businesses, vehicles and boats.

Hear what action officers are taking this year to help everyone stay safe and enjoy the holidays. Be aware that driving and speaking or texting on a cell phone are now against the law and the police will be on the look-out for transgressors.

With a different theme highlighted each week, get tips on how to remain safe.

Next stop is Camana Bay for an annual fundraiser by law enforcement officials for special Olympians. Learn about the efforts put in each year to ensure these special people come together for a worthy cause. Join in the action as departments' heavyweights and volunteers try to pull a fire truck across the finish line in the shortest time possible.

Finally, it's time to seek treasures in the National Archive. View archived footage of an important segment of Cayman's history. Discover who Miss Annie Huldah Bodden was and the role she played in the story of Cayman's democracy.

Hear from this first nominated female member of the Legislative Assembly to gauge her impact generally on the Islands and particularly her district of George Town.

Produced by Government Information Services, GIS Spotlight highlights government services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you.

The weekly programme airs on Cayman27 at 8:30 p.m. on Mondays, and 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays. All stories seen in this week's show can also be found on the GIS Marketing and Communications website: www.gis.ky.
