JOHOR BARU: Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Almarhum Sultan Iskandar told local councils and related rescue agencies in the state to be alert and be prepared during the current rainy season.
Early preparations and planning, he said, must be done to ensure assistance could be immediately given if an area was hit by floods.
His message was posted on his official Facebook page.
“Because of the current unpredictable weather, it is very important for everyone, especially rescue teams, to be prepared and ready,” he said.
Sultan Ibrahim also reminded parents and guardians to always monitor their children in the event of floods.
“We do not want anything untoward to happen.
“During floods we can also see how people come to help each other regardless of beliefs. This is also an opportunity to strengthen unity among Bangsa Johor,” he said.
Sultan Ibrahim also took the time to visit flood victims from Kampung Sungai Suloh and Kampung Sungai Ayam who were evacuated to a relief centre in SK Sungai Suloh, Batu Pahat recently. – Bernama.
