MOF formulates more holistic disaster-linked allocations

Natural disasters, especially floods that hit the country last year, will be the guide of the Finance Ministry in formulating a more holistic budget, said Deputy Finance Minister Mohd Shahar Abdullah.

He said, therefore, through engagement sessions with the Fire and Rescue Department, it was found helpful to the ministry in providing better allocations, such as the acquisition of assets and infrastructure.

“The Fire and Rescue Department is among the first agencies to arrive at the scene and they have accurate and thorough input, thus the ministry needs to be able to plan more effective financial channelling.

"From the input, we see what can be improved, however, it depends on the country's financial position at that time and the current needs," he told reporters at the Fire and Rescue Department Honourary Rank Awarding ceremony in Kuantan today.

Earlier, Mohd Shahar was awarded the rank of Deputy Fire Commissioner (Honourary) by Fire and Rescue Department director-general Mohammad Hamdan Wahid at a ceremony which was also attended by Pahang Fire and Rescue Department director Wan Mohammad Zaidi Wan Isa.

Honourary rank

Also receiving the rank of Deputy Fire Commissioner (Honourary) were Pahang State Financial Officer Nazri Abu Bakar, Pahang Rural Development and Orang Asli Affairs Committee chairperson Abd Aziz Mat Kiram and the state Felda, Cooperatives, Entrepreneurs and Consumer Affairs Committee chairperson Nazri Ngah.

Meanwhile, Pahang Sultan special private secretary Tok Aria Ratna Ahmad Norbadelin Abd Murad, Pahang Social Welfare Department director Zulkhairi Zainol Abidin and Pahang Solid Waste Management and Public Cleansing Corporation (SWCorp) director Sharudin Hamid received the rank of Assistant Fire Commissioner (Honourary).

Meanwhile, Mohd Shahar, who is also Paya Besar MP, said the fire station in Sungai Lembing which is under construction is expected to be completed next year.
