KOTA KINABALU: Some 74 Diplomatic Administration (PTD) cadet officers successfully completed their twelve-day course module for disaster management and public order, held from 1 February ago.
The Training Division Deputy Chief Director, Ys. PKBjB Mohd Hamdan Wahid, said the training is not only to expose them on firefighting and fire safety, but also for the participants to understand issues related with their duties.
“It is one of the modules required for PTD cadets to fill their requirement for the public administration diploma course.
“When a crisis or disaster occur, it will not be handled by solely one organization; it will involve other bodies as well,” he said.
