He said this while presiding over a workshop titled "The Role of Media in Prevention of Emergencies" by the Punjab Emergency Service (Rescue 1122) here on Friday.

The main purpose of the workshop is to have an interactive session with the beat reporters and share with them the vision of prevention of emergencies as envisaged by Director General Brig (R) Dr Arshad Zia.

Dr Arshad Zia in his address briefed the participants about the "Role of Media in Prevention of Emergencies".
