Emergency services hold Brunei River exercise

Two boats collided in the waters just below the Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Hajah Saleha (RIPAHS) Bridge, sending several passengers into the Brunei River. Personnel from Fire and Rescue Department (FRD), the Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF), Emergency Medical Ambulance Services (EMAS) and the Marine Port Authority of Brunei Darussalam (MPABD) were immediately deployed to the site, for a search-and-rescue operation. This was the scenario of a recent exercise codenamed ‘EXSESAIS SEKOCI 2021’, led by Exercise Director and Commanding officer of the ‘D’ Operation Branch SSFR Muhd Shahreeni bin Haji Mohd Yussof.
