TAWAU: The Disaster Management Workshop organised by the Eastern Sabah Security Command (Esscom) could be used as a guide for the standard operating procedure (SOP) during times of an actual crisis or security disaster, said Eastern Region Command Commander Lt General Datuk Mohd Zaki Mokhtar.
He said the workshop could foster better understanding between the different agencies to work as a team when facing a crisis or security disaster.
Mohd Zaki added that it was not easy to unify the different security agencies under one team during a crisis as there were many differences in work procedures, duties and work culture.
“However, the OPS Daulat carried out in Kampung Tanduo taught us the meaning of strong cooperation between agencies in defending the nation’s peace and sovereignty,” he told reporters after officiating the closing ceremony of the three-day workshop which began on Feb 21.
Also present were Esscom Commander DSP Datuk Abd Rashid Harun and Esscomm Chief Executive Officer, Ruji Ubi.-BERNAMA
