Over 40 Per Cent Drop In Emergency Cases During MCO – Fire DG

PUTRAJAYA, May 1 — The number of emergency cases involving fire, road accidents and water rescue had dropped to over 40 per cent nationwide, since the Movement Control Order (MCO) was enforced on March 18.

Fire and Rescue Department of Malaysia (JBPM) director-general Datuk Mohammad Hamdan Wahid said the decline in cases was because people had been staying at home.

“Fires still occur at squatter houses but only on a small scale,” he told Bernama here today.

He said though the firefighters’ workload had increased since the spread of COVID-19 infection as they have been tasked with sanitisation work, they have not neglected their normal duties in attending to emergency cases.
