Explore career as firemen, Indian youths urged
INDIAN youths in the country should show more initiative to join the Fire and Rescue Department, Makkal Osai reported the department’s Kuala Lumpur branch director Khiruddin Drahman as saying.
The branch has 19 fire stations with 983 officers serving in various roles, but only 20 of those officers are from the Indian community.
Khiruddin was speaking at the department’s third annual Deepavali gathering when he urged Indian youths to explore the opportunities awaiting them in the fire services.
Those interested in attending the interviews should understand the roles played by the department to ensure their success, he added.
