MIRI, June 23: Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd (PCSB) contributed personal protective equipment (PPE) and disinfectant solution to the Miri Fire and Rescue Department (Bomba) to curb the spread of Covid-19.

According to a media release, the items included 1,650 face masks, 1,000 gloves, 100 sets of protective suits and 220 litres of disinfectant solution.

PCSB-Sarawak Oil Division senior general manager Morris Mail handed over the contributions to Bomba Zone 6 chief Law Poh Kiong at the Lopeng Bomba Station near Jalan Miri here recently.

“Our aim is to support the frontliners in Miri who are conducting sanitisation operations in public areas and facilities over and above their existing Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief (HADR) responsibilities.

“In light of the recent spike in cases, Petronas is providing the necessary assistance to these enforcement personnel who are working tirelessly and risking their health to curb the spread of Covid-19. We are grateful for their dedications and sacrifices,” Morris said.


He added that as a responsible and caring organisation, Petronas will continue to work closely with the relevant government agencies to provide the necessary support, especially during these challenging times.

“Our priority is the health and safety of our employees and the surrounding communities where we operate,” he emphasised.

This contribution complements initiatives by Petronas’ corporate social responsibility arm, Yayasan Petronas, as well as other groupwide contributions in responding to the pandemic. — DayakDaily
