PAGADIAN CITY, March 6 (PIA)—The Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) intensifies the conduct of fire safety and awareness campaign to jumpstart the Fire Prevention Month.

City Fire Marshal Senior Inspector Reggy A. Olmedo said the Pagadian City Central Fire Station continues to reach out to the public, especially in the barangay level, to provide fire prevention information and fire safety consciousness to the community through its Barangay Ugnayan Program.

Olmedo said the campaign was started early January this year.

The information, education and communication (IEC) campaign covers discussion of safety reminders and preventive measures to avoid fire occurrence at home.

The fire chief said in the entire month of March, the BFP personnel will conduct seminars, lectures and drills in different barangays because  residents are the first line of defense.

“It is very important to educate our people on how to prevent fire,” Olmedo stressed.

“We will distribute fire safety materials like flyers, leaflets and posters in the different barangays to remind the public to be always alert and take precautions,” Olmedo explained.

The BFP has also intensified its fire safety inspection and campaign especially in boarding houses, dormitories, hotels, schools, and beer houses.

“Let us make every day of the year a fire prevention day not only this month of March,” Olmedo said adding that fire prevention is  not only BFP’s business but everybody’s concern. (ALT/GCC/PIA9-Zamboanga del Sur)
