THE newly-established Neighbourhood Emergency Response Team (NERT) of the Liang Lumut Community yesterday held a briefing session on basic emergency procedures and equipment at the Liang Lumut Recreational Club in Belait.
The session was attended by representatives from the Sungai Liang Fire and Rescue Department and the Belait Ambulance Medical Emergency Services.
NERT is a spin-off initiative of the existing Liang Lumut Community (MLL) as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) and it will be focused on community safety and will provide a systematic mechanism to ensure the optimum level of readiness and efficiency towards addressing any emergency occurrences which may require community-level evacuations.
Established just last month, NERT is supported by Brunei LNG Sdn Bhd – a member of the MLL – as part of its Social Performance and Social Investment effort to give a platform for the MLL to discuss on matters and activities relating to community emergencies and safety.
Yesterday’s briefing was conducted by Muhammad Ali Hassan, the Station Commander of the Sg Liang Fire Station also as one of NERT’s Co-Chairpersons.
