The Putrajaya Command Centre manned by an employee clad in traditional attire on the first day of Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

REGARDLESS of the holiday season, services by local authorities continue especially concerning public safety and security.

At the Putrajaya Command Centre, staff turned up to work in their traditional attire on Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

The integrated operations centre monitors the safety, security, traffic flow, infrastructure and environmental sensors in public areas.

In the capital city, due to unpredictable weather, Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) general workers with the help of Alam Flora staff, were busy cleaning the drains at flood hotspots in Jalan Dato Onn on May 3 and Lorong Sentul Manis on May 4, among other places.

An area near Bank Negara Malaysia’s Sasana Kijang building in Jalan Dato Onn was flooded on the first day of Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Dr Shahidan Kassim and Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Seri Mahadi Che Ngah visited the site the same afternoon to ensure that the situation was under control.
