“Abang Bomba” calendar is back for 2017!
Time to welcome the New Year with some muscles, as Malaysia’s annual firemen calendar featuring buffy and brawny firefighters are back!
Similar with the calendars from the previous years, the 2017 calendar features Malaysia’s brave and muscular firemen (and women) in their iconic orange suit, ready to save the day!
“Hopefully, the abang-abang sado (muscular male officers) will show that we are a fit department,” Fire and Rescue Department Corporate Management division Senior Supt Norizan Saad said to The Star.
“From the middle of this year and into next year, we are promoting a ‘Let’s Get Fit’ programme,” he continued.
With their tagline “Cepat dan Mesra” (Quick and Friendly), the calendar highlights some of the tough missions the firemen have to carry out such as rescue work at accident sites, putting out forest fires and airlifting victims from rugged mountain peaks.
“This is to show that our scope of work includes duties outside our core activity, which are firefighting and general rescue services,” he said.
As usual, these calendars are not for sale but are for internal circulation only.
However, members of the public can get their hands on the copies at Bomba-hosted public events. So make sure to stay tuned to their Facebook page!
