Syarikat Perniagaan Malar Setia together with the Fire and Rescue Department (FRD) conducted a fire drill on Saturday.

It aimed at assessing the preparedness of Malar Setia’s fire marshals, first aiders and employees during an emergency as part of the organisation’s initiatives in promoting a safe work environment.

The drill’s scenario was a fire at the organisation’s premises. Firefighters arrived at the scene within five minutes and doused the fire after being alerted by Malar Setia’s Chief Fire Marshal Ummi Atiyah binti Haji Rahman.
