Twelve villagers from Kampong Sungai Bunga completed a basic jungle rescue course conducted by SO Matassan bin Yussof and ASO Haji Mohammad bin Haji Putra from the Public Relations Division, Operation ‘D’ Branch of the Fire and Rescue Department (FRD) at Bukit Kindana Recreational Park recently.

The course concluded with the search and rescue training of a victim who had fallen into a 45-metre-deep gorge from the top of the hill.

Meanwhile, the FRD also conducts safety programmes such as Life Saver 995 and fire marshal courses to disseminate the proper use of a fire extinguisher and procedures in emergency situations.
