Kuala Lumpur Fire and Rescue Department director Khirudin Drahman sang praises for volunteer firefighter teams (VFT) such as the MVFRA during a speech in January, saying their work was more vital for fire safety in the long run.
For Balasupramaniam, the biggest hurdle to running the MVFRA was funding the association.
Much like its volunteers who are not paid at all for their contributions and services, MVFRA is also not supported by any agencies and must depend on contributions from private companies, often as part of their corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes.
For many, simply finding time just for one job is already a challenge, but MVFRA volunteers must squeeze out extra hours for their trainings and volunteer shifts.
With his background in corporate health and safety, Noordin said joining the MVFRA was a natural transition, but conceded to feeling some difficulty initially when dealing with the deaths and tragedies that come with being a Red Zone responder.
