Woman heads Terengganu Fire Department

KUALA TERENGGANU: Being among the first women to be promoted to head a Class A fire and rescue station is not a burden for Rozizah Abni Hajar.

The 49-year-old mother of four, who previously served as the public relations officer for the Terengganu Fire and Rescue Department, said her appointment showed women were no longer just support staff working behind the scenes.

“With the position that I now hold, the community can see that women are now on par with their male counterparts and it eliminates discrimination based on gender in a government organisation,” she told Bernama.

On Jan 2, the Ipoh-born Rozizah was promoted from Senior Assistant Fire Superintendent to Deputy Fire Superintendent. She has served the department for 28 years.

She is married to Sharudin Safar, 53, who is a fire officer attached to the Eastern Region Fire and Rescue Academy at Wakaf Tapai.
