With the action that took place on Thursday (15), in Ceilândia, the number of abandoned vehicles removed from the streets of the Federal District reaches 572, through the DF Free Carcasses operation, which started in February last year. The forecast was that today 30 carcasses would be sent to the deposit, but with the educational action of the teams in the field, 15 cars were removed by the owners and placed in suitable places. In this way, fifteen carcasses went to the deposit.
The action is part of the series of measures adopted by the GDF to eliminate outbreaks of the Aedes aegypti mosquito – transmitter of dengue, zika and chikungunya. Under the coordination of the Public Security Secretariat (SSP), the action brings together the secretariats of Cities, Executive of Public Policies and Legal DF, the Department of Traffic (Detran) and the Military Police of the Federal District (PMDF). The Environmental Surveillance Directorate (Dival) of the Health Secretariat (SES), the Companhia Urbanizadora da Nova Capital (Novacap) and the Department of Highways (DER) also integrate the DF Livre de Carcaças, which, this Thursday ( 15), also had the support of the Special Operations Division (DOE), of the Civil Police of the Federal District (PCDF).
“This is a pioneering operation that agrees with the actions to combat dengue from the GDF and shows the commitment of those involved. Removing materials from the streets also contributes to increasing the population’s sense of security, as abandoned cars can serve as a point of sale and use of drugs. In this first quarter alone, 150 vehicles have already been sent to the warehouse ”, evaluates the Secretary of Security, delegate Júlio Danilo.
The collected material is taken to the deposit of the 3rd Highway District, of the DER / DF, where the Environmental Surveillance agents apply solutions to the standing water and do the vector control.
The regional administrator of the city, Marcelo Piauí, praised the action. “I am grateful to the Secretariat of Security and the other agencies involved not only for making our city cleaner and more beautiful, but also for the excellent work that has been done throughout the Federal District”.
The proximity of the Community Security Councils (Consegs) to the population facilitates the identification of materials on the streets. “We also have the support of regional administrations and the population, who send us the location of carcasses by e-mail. This joint work is fundamental for the continuity of the action ”, emphasizes the coordinator of the Consegs, Marcelo Batista.
To contribute to the identification of these materials, just send a message by e-mail, with information that facilitates the location of the debris.
The Free Carcass DF began in February 2020 and has already occurred in Samambaia, Candangolândia, Guará, Southwest, Taguatinga, SIA, Plano Piloto, Paranoá, Ceilândia, Santa Maria, Gama, Recanto das Emas, Riacho Fundo, Sobradinho, São Sebastião , Núcleo Bandeirante, Arniqueira, Riacho Fundo II, Cruzeiro and Planaltina.
