James Kon

No injuries were reported after strong winds tore off a section of the roof of a home in Kampong Negalang Ering in Temburong District on Sunday night.

ASO Haji Yussof bin Haji Jerudin from the Bangar Fire Station led six firefighters to the scene, swiftly moving in to replace the two zinc roofing sheets that had been blown away.

In light of the incident, the Fire and Rescue Department (FRD) advises the public to stay abreast with the weather forecast issued by the Brunei Darussalam Meteorological Department (BDMD) through Radio Televisyen Brunei (RTB), or by downloading the Brunei WX app, to be prepared for any uncertain weather.

Meanwhile, the FRD is providing safety programmes including the Fire Marshall Course, Life Saver 995 Course and fire safety talk to raise awareness on handling emergencies.
