KUALA PENYU: Beaufort Member of Parliament Datuk Azizah Mohd Dun commended the sacrifice made by the three fire fighters of Fire and Rescue Department which she described as honourable.
She is also touched and impressed with the fire department personnels who performed their duties in rescuing disaster victims with diligence.
“The credit also goes to the police, firefighters, armies and volunteers who helped in the rescue operations for the flood victims in the affected areas,” she said while visiting the district hospital, here today.
The three fire fighters are now receiving treatment at the district hospital ward for leptospirosis, which they contracted when doing rescue operations in Beaufort and Membakut recently.
Their conditions are improving after receiving treatment for a week.
Azizah also urged the people in the flooded area to supervise their food and drinks cleanliness to prevent leptospirosis.
“People are easily infected with Cholera, typhoid fever; if sanitation is ignored especially after a flood,” she said. – SayangSabah
