Life Saving Society of Malaysia

The Life Saving Society of Malaysia (LSSM), which began as the ‘ Royal Life Saving Society Malaysia Branch’ was established in the year 1964. As early as 1927, a group of life savers had been trained in the Bronze Medallion under Mr. Lee Fong Lim at the Penang Chinese Swimming Club. The establishment of the RLSS Malaysian Branch marked the beginning of organised life saving in the country.
