In a big operation involving mountain, MoSAR will be part of Bomba Task Force together with JBPM Special Forces such as MUST, EMRS and STORM.
Volunteer Fire and Rescue Force (Malay: Pasukan Bomba dan Penyelamat Sukarela; BOMPENS) traces their history way back since year 1883.

Each Volunteer Fire and Rescue Force has their own Fire Stations, Firetrucks and equipment; which usually sponsored by local industry.

In case of fire emergency happen in their community, the volunteers will be first there to control if not extinguish the fire. The secondary role is to be the link between JBPM and their local community. They also entrusted by JBPM to spread awareness regarding to fire safety.
The Volunteer Fire and Rescue Force will be training regularly by district fire stations so they and their equipment in good shape for fire emergency. The volunteers can be easily identified by their yellow Firefighting Operations Dress.
