- Take in the Fire Fighting Competition in Langkawi

June 02, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News can reveal that people who are staying in Langkawi hotels during June that want a break from lounging on the beautiful beaches could be intrigued by a contest being held on the island.

The Fire Fighting Competition Langkawi 2010 will be taking place in the car park of the Lada Building - home to the Langkawi Development Agency - and could prove to be an interesting diversion.

It is described by the Kedah State Government Tourism Board as "a unique event where participants get to show off their fire fighting prowess".

Competitors are not just from the island's fire service either. Members of the local tourism industry, hotel workers and even people from local government agencies will all be having a go with the hoses.

Anyone who takes part can try out a range of fire fighting techniques, under close supervision by members from the local fire service.

Organised by Tourism Langkawi, the Langkawi Tourism Association and the Langkawi Fire and Rescue Department, it is designed to raise fire safety awareness within the local community.

All the action will take place on June 21st just outside the Lada Building, which can be found in Kuah Town.
