Review SOP Of National Disaster Management – Muhyiddin
PUCHONG, Dec 27 – Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin wants the standard operating procedures (SOP) of national disaster management to be reviewed to reduce burdens and losses in the future. The deputy prime minister said it included the need to have a more efficient weather forecast system to ease preparations to face natural disasters.
He said he was informed that the weather forecast issued by the Meteorological Department was based on the previous year’s weather condition. “As we enter the month of December, the weather condition changes and becomes more and more challenging compared to the initial report.
“So, the weather forecast must be accurate for a period of three or four days, so that disaster management plan can be adjusted to the actual period,” he told reporters after attending the briefing on the latest flood situation at the National Disaster Command Centre here today.
