IPOH: The celebration of World Firefighters’ Day 2024 will make its own history as it is being held for the first time in the state of Perak, hosted on May 4.

Taking place at the Lost World of Tambun theme park, it will be inaugurated by the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

World Firefighters’ Day celebration is one of the recognitions by society not only in Malaysia but worldwide towards the role of firefighters.

The Minister of Housing and Local Government, Nga Kor Ming, stated that the selection of Ipoh, particularly Tambun, as the venue for the event is very special.

“Tambun, which is also the Prime Minister’s parliamentary area, is where we are hosting the celebration this time.

“Various exciting events will be held such as helicopter exhibitions, water bomb demonstrations, firefighter skills demonstrations, and not forgetting the firefighter ‘hunks’.

“This celebration also serves as recognition of the commitment and sacrifices of firefighters in handling emergencies, disasters, and so forth,” he said.

This is also the second time a firefighting program in Ipoh has been attended by the Prime Minister.

Last March, Anwar inaugurated the Tambun Fire and Rescue Station (BBP).

In other developments, Kor Ming announced that this year the Prime Minister will also launch the first Madani Recreational Park in Tambun.

Madani Recreational Park is another initiative of the Ministry of Housing and Local Government.

He said that the ministry aims to construct a total of 100 such recreational parks, including 22 in the state of Perak.
