MIRI: Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd (PCSB) donated personal protective equipment (PPE) and disinfectant solution to the Miri Fire and Rescue Department in its effort to fight the spread of Covid-19.

The items comprised 1,650 face masks, 1,000 gloves, 100 sets of protective suits and 220 litres of disinfectant solution.

PCSB-Sarawak Oil Division senior general manager Morris Mail handed over the contributions to the department’s Zone 6 chief Supt Law Poh Kiong at the Lopeng Fire and Rescue Station on Wednesday (June 23).

“Our aim is to support the frontliners in Miri who are conducting sanitisation operations at public areas and facilitate humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HADR) responsibilities.

“In light of the recent spike in cases, Petronas is providing the necessary assistance to these enforcement personnel who are working tirelessly and risking their health to curb the spread of Covid-19. We are grateful for their dedication and sacrifices,” Morris said.

Morris added that as a responsible and caring organisation, Petronas will continue to work closely with the relevant government agencies to provide the necessary support, especially during these challenging times.

“Our priority is the health and safety of our employees and the surrounding communities where we operate,” he added.

The contribution complements initiatives by Petronas’ corporate social responsibility arm, Yayasan Petronas, as well as other contributions in responding to the pandemic.
