Introduction

According to List 1 Schedule 9, Federal Constitution Ammendment 1976, the prevention and the extinguishment of fires including fire fighting services and fire fighting squads were under the responsibility of the Federal Government. Therefore, fire stations were built from time to time in strategic locations to fulfill this obligation. Nevertheless, these efforts had not fulfilled the overall needs especially in small towns and rural areas. This trend was expected to continue in the next few decades. One of the steps taken to fill the vacuum was by introducing and mobilizing the establishment of fire and rescue volunteer squads throughout the country. Excerps from item 14.65 Seventh Malaysia Plan, "Volunteer Fire Squads will be established in society and they will be given training in fire fighting and prevention". The purpose of this was to ensure that trained volunteer fire squads could act immediately in case of fires.
