Sun.Star Pampanga - - STORIES! - ---CSF-CIO

C ITY OF SAN FER­NANDO---The Bureau of Fire Pro­tec­tion (BFP) San Fer­nando led the launch of the fire pre­ven­tion month ob­ser­vance of this cap­i­tal city dur­ing Mon­day’s flag rais­ing cer­e­mony at city hall.

Ac­cord­ing to City Fire Mar­shal Chief In­spec­tor Rod­er­ick Mar­quez, the month of March was de­clared to as “Fire Pre­ven­tion Month” since it al­ways records an in­creas­ing num­ber of fire in­ci­dents na­tion­wide.

“Our pro­gram is whole year round. We just dou­ble them dur­ing March as it is fire pre­ven­tion month where fire in­ci­dents in­crease,” said Mar­quez.

Prior to the of­fi­cial launch, the BFP held last week at city hall draw­ing, poster-mak­ing, and es­say writ­ing con­tests for Fer­nandino pupils and stu­dents, with top­ics in­volv­ing fire safety con­scious­ness.

While, dur­ing the launch, some mem­bers of the agency demon­strated fire safety ac­tions for kitchen fires, which, as the BFP stated, is one of the most preva­lent types of fire in­ci­dents in San Fer­nando.

The agency also dis­trib­uted free fire ex­tin­guish­ers to se­lect em­ploy­ees and safety tips brochures with con­tents on safety mea­sures such as putting a smoke alarm, fire ex­tin­guisher, and emer­gency exit plan in their homes and on be­ing vig­i­lant on ac­tiv­i­ties in­volv­ing fire.

Mayor Ed­win “EdSa” San­ti­ago, for his part, urged Fer­nandi­nos to be part of the BFP’s cam­paign to­wards fire pre­ven­tion.

“We would like to ex­tend our grat­i­tude to the BFP for let­ting us be part of this cam­paign. We Fer­nandi­nos must join the cam­paign as fire de­stroys a loy of prop­er­ties and lives,” said San­ti­ago.

For other fire safety mea­sures, you can call the BFP San Fer­nando at 9612313 or visit their of­fice be­side the city hall.
