PETALING JAYA: A hiking group has advised hikers to provide a copy of their permits to relevant authorities to inform them of their plans following several mishaps on various nature trails recently.

Other than informing the district police station, which is compulsory, hikers too should inform the nearest Fire and Rescue Department and the Malaysia Civil Defence Force (JPAM) as well.
