Description:
The Malaysian Fire and Rescue Department () or popularly known as Bomba is the fire and rescue services agency in Malaysia. The Malay term 'Bomba' is borrowed from the Portuguese word 'Bombeiros' which carries the same meaning.

History

The fire and rescue services in Malaysia started in 1883 with the establishment of the Selangor state fire and rescue volunteers squad headed by H.F.Bellamy with 15 crews. In 1946 after the World War II, the Malayan Union Fire Services (MUS) was formed with Flight Lt. W.J Gerumandi being appointed as the Director of Malayan Union Fire Services. MUS was based in Kuala Lumpur.

Through the Federation of Malaya's agreement, the fire and rescue service was handed over to the state governments. The service was then integrated as a federal-level department on 1 January 1976, reporting to the Ministry of Housing and Local Government. On 8 January 1977, the department was renamed as the Malaysian Fire and Rescue Department.
