TENAGA Nasional Bhd (TNB) is aiding the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) and Malaysian Armed Forces (ATM) manning temporary security by installing streetlamps at areas without proper lighting for their safety and convenience during the Movement Control Order (MCO) period.
In a statement yesterday, TNB chief distribution network officer Datuk Baharin Din said TNB strives to provide the best services to the people and is fully cognisant that several locations of the temporary security posts in the peninsula require proper lighting.
“We hope the initiative can provide convenience and improve the safety of the PDRM and ATM who are on night duty,” he added.
The electric supply to tents and security posts are supplied via the nearest TNB power lines, while the streetlights are installed at existing TNB electricity poles.
So far, 120 temporary security posts have been illuminated — which includes the Bentong and Temerloh post in Pahang; Kulai, Pontian and Kluang in Johor; Seremban and Kuala Pilah in Negri Sembilan; Kota Baru, Kelantan; Merlimau and Jasin in Melaka; Kuala Kangsar, Perak; and Kuala Lumpur.
TNB is currently identifying other locations that require lighting to assist the PDRM and ATM throughout the MCO.
