Undoubtedly, sliding down a fire pole has got to be on the must-do-before-I-die list for many individuals; or at the very least, the ultimate playground equipment for children having watched Mickey’s Fire Brigade since 1935. But even a simple two-storey fixture can become dangerous if one does not know how to descend properly, resulting in fractures or broken appendages.

PTCM serves as Malaysia’s very own rescue team in the event of unforeseeable catastrophes. This first training session held for the Petaling Jaya faction sought to equip willing civilians with the right knowledge to fight flames in the event of a blazing calamity.
“Malaysia has state-of-the-art facilities when it comes to emergencies. However, we must also acknowledge the fact that it takes time for authorities to arrive at…
