KUCHING, March 9: Fire and Rescue Departments (Bomba) cadets are urged to always remember the teachings they learnt and to be humble after they passed their Sergeant exam.
“The first teaching is helping. All cadets who had been promoted must always provide help to everyone including the public,” Sarawak Bomba chief, Khirudin Drahman said during the closing ceremony for the Platoon Head Course at Maktab Rendah Sains Mara this morning.
He also urged them to follow Standard Operation Procedure (SOP) where the cadets must obey the rules which are fixed by Bomba and also their schools.
By following the rules, the cadets’ reputation and public image will be preserved as outsiders would see the cadets were well disciplined, he added.
“As a cadet member, we must also know the meaning of saving whereby all cadets are taught various emergency knowledge such as doing first aid, tying rope knots and others,” he noted.
He also emphasised that cadets must be brave when performing saving procedures no matter how big or small the accident is.
Khirudin urged cadets who have been commissioned to guide and help the newer cadets and their friends.
“Last is moral values and all the cadets must have high discipline and integrity in their life so that they can contribute and help the team.”
Meanwhile, 18 schools in Sarawak with a total of 94 students participated in the Platoon Head Course which was held from March 6-9. — DayakDaily
