THE Selangor government will carry out a flood simulation exercise, with focus given on improving the process of search and rescue operations, according to Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari.
He said that in addition to search and rescue operations, the simulation exercise, which will be held next month, would also involve the process of mobilising the operations room and help room.
“During the previous floods, our search and rescue operations were a bit slow but other processes were very much intact,” he told the media in Shah Alam, here today.,
“So, now we have learned from that experience to further improve, like if floods occur, how to carry out the search and rescue, how to sound the alarm and so on,” he said.
Meanwhile, Amirudin said the state government was bracing itself for the possibility of a global economic slowdown next year.
“The recent state government meeting had instructed state investment, industry and commerce, and small and medium enterprises committee chairman Teng Chang Khim, the state treasury and the state secretary to form a panel to assess the possibility of an economic slowdown occurring next year,” he said.
He said the state government would get ready by formulating possible steps that it could take and proposing additional solutions. – Bernama, August 26, 2022.
