Disaster Simulation Exercise 2019

‘Disaster Simulation Exercise’ in collaboration with KTMB Gemas, Negeri Sembilan State Health Office, and local authorities under District of Tampin was held from 24th April to 25th April 2019. This simulation has successfully brought together all relevant first responder agencies to work together in making the simulation wholesome.

National Agency for Disaster Management (NADMA), Fire and Rescue Department Malaysia (JBPM), Ministry of Health (MOH) especially Emergency and Trauma Department (Hospital Tuanku Jaafar  Seremban), Department of Veterinary Services (DVS), Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM), Malaysia Civil Defence Force (APM) and Tampin District Office are the key groups coming from both the ministry and agencies involved in this simulation exercise. During this simulation, all agencies, especially health staffs from health clinics, learn to work hand-in-hand, to orchestrate their procedures to fit their roles in inter-agencies communication and coordination to manage the hybrid simulation scenario.

A table top exercise with all the participants and Exercise Management Team took place on April 24 to familiarize exercise players on what if and what could happen during the full-scale exercise based on injected scenarios. A full-scale exercise began the following day with a simulation of a three-tonne truck that had a collision with a train at railway crossing which had caused passengers in three train coaches affected. In total, over 400 people involved in this simulation exercise including 80 actors to play victims that came from USIM, Institute of Technology Gemas, UNISEL and Seremban College, 160 troops from JBPM, APM, PDRM, and more than 80 health staffs from health clinics responded to the simulated disaster.  

The exercise simulation runs smoothly with the organized flow and good communications between agencies, and this could be seen as a huge success prior to its being organized for the first time. A great number of feedbacks were received, concluding that the exercise was hybrid as well as novelty in nature. Participants involved in this simulation if not more, have at least gained some experiential learning in facing disaster should our country needs their service.
