MIRI, 23 JULY 2018 – Contrary to recent report that the Piasau Nature Reserve (PNR)’s new Visitor Information Centre (VIC) is open to public, SARAWAK FORESTRY Corporation Sdn. Bhd. (SFCSB) would like to clarify that the centre was merely undertaking test run on the new facilities there.
Piasau Nature Reserve had gained huge boost to its popularity with the test run of the new Visitor Information Centre (VIC) carried out between late June and early July. However, the centre focus were particularly targeted on the audio visual system and lighting system workability particularly when catering for capacity crowd patronizing the centre at any given time. In mimicking an actual scenario, the management team experiences on how to deal with ad-hoc possibilities and eventualities when handling visitors arrival on weekdays, weekends and also public holidays. With sophisticated safety features added into the buildings, risk managements are to be in place to reduce possible risks faced by the visitors and to ensure their safety.
In short, it has been a fruitful and valuable exercise made possible by the active participation from regular users of the reserve and the general public at large throughout the period. The Centre is now under further preparations and touch up until the official launching day.
