The district-level flood simulation exercise will be carried out throughout the country in preparation for the floods, says Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim.

He said it was one of the measures to be taken by the National Disaster Management Agency this year, as a lesson learned from last year’s floods.

“We will conduct the exercise among district officers. It will specify the tasks and role to be performed by the public in the event of flooding in their areas.

“This Thursday I will meet with all the district officers and members of Parliament, we will show the best flood simulation exercise which has been carried out in some areas like in Parit and Pasir Salak, Perak,” he told reporters after a walkabout programme at Pasar Tani Mega Taman Sena Indah in Kangar, Perlis, today. – Bernama, November 14, 2015.
