All Petron petrol stations nationwide are designed to act as "safe zones" for the public to get assistance during emergencies like crimes or accidents
In a press conference on 18 July, Petron retail business head Faridah Ali kicked off the project, called "Go To Safety Point" (GTSP), saying that several GTSP boards have been set up at 10 Petron stations in Klang Valley to show that the stations offer assistance.
Under GTSP, victims will be able to go to these petrol stations in the case of an emergency to seek help from the operators
Petron station dealers and key managers are trained by cops to help victims before the police arrive, reported The Star.
"They are trained to calm down the victim as well as know the necessary emergency numbers to call," said Ali.
The initiative was first introduced by the police in 2013 by making a 7-Eleven convenience store and post office partners, reported New Straits Times. It then expanded to Petron stations all over Malaysia, including those in Sabah and Sarawak.
