Penang Port Sdn Bhd (Penang Port), a member of MMC Group, assisted the Penang Fire and Rescue Department to extinguish the fire outbreak on the Penang Bridge.

The fire outbreak involved electrical cables at the 3.2KM mark of the bridge and Penang Port’s Fire and Rescue team was called upon to assist by dousing the fire under the bridge. The two-days operation was led by Mohd Azwadi Abdul Rahman, Head Section of Emergency Services and Mohd Shazrul Shafiq bin Abd Halim, Assistant Fire Superintendent.

Arrived at the scene with the Sri Perkasa 75 pilot boat and Nadyionel tugboat, the Fire and Rescue team immediately aided to extinguish the fire through an Otter fire pump. The relentless effort finally paid off after they had successfully extinguish the fire.

The effort by Penang Port’s Fire and Rescue team together with other local agencies were crucial to ensure the safety of Penangites who primarily use the Penang Bridge as a daily transportation access.
