48 DEALERS RECOGNISED FOR HELPING VICTIMS, EFFORT TO FIGHT CRIMES
Petron Dealers Awarded Commendation Letter By Royal Malaysia Police under the Go-To Safety Points Programme
KUALA LUMPUR – 48 Petron Malaysia dealers received commendation letters from the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) in line with the Go-To Safety Points (GTSP) programme which recognizes dealers’ contributions in keeping their neighbourhoods safe.
These dealers provided early assistance to individuals seeking help from their stations from 2017 to 2019. Most recorded incidents were related to medical and security emergencies.
“We are pleased that the GTSP initiatives at Petron stations have proven to be a great
help to the community. This is one of our ways to contribute to the safety, security and
well-being of the communities we serve. We hope this will also create more awareness
of GTSP and for the public to take advantage of the availability of GTSP at Petron
stations,” said Lokman Hani, Petron Malaysia Corporate Safety, Security, Health and
The “Go-To Safety Point” is a public-private initiative led by the PDRM. It is under the
government’s “United Against Crime” national programme which aims to keep local communities safe and secure. GTSP basically transforms locations to “safe havens” by allowing increased police presence and quicker reaction times.
“I am happy that I could be part of the programme and help more people in need. Our station has been part of the community since 2018 and this is one of the ways we could help our community,” said Rabiatuladawiyah bt Dato’ Dr. Haji Ahmad, Dealer of Petron Melor in Kelantan.
“It was an honour to be able to perform a lifesaving skill CPR for 25 minutes on a person in distress while waiting for paramedics. It was made possible by attending GTSP training on basic emergency and first aid course. I hope to encourage more people to have more knowledge to give emergency response while waiting for professional help,” said Petron Kebun Teh dealer Sharifah Shamini bt Syed Mohamed.
“My station is one of the safety locators of the GTSP programme. The station is one of the first points of contact for the public to reach out during an emergency situation. As dealers, we are trained by PDRM on how to handle emergency situations and provide assistance. We are thankful to be part of the programme,” said dealer Petron Leila Road in Sabah, Mr Brian Chiong.
Petron Malaysia is the first oil company to partner with GTSP in 2013. To date, all 700
Petron Service Stations all over Malaysia are GTSP ready. Our station personnel undergo training provided by PDRM as well as refresher sessions to prepare them for emergency situations.
To enhance awareness of GTSP, Petron Malaysia unveiled new posters and a new GTSP logo which will be placed at all Petron stations.
