BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya, Feb. 6 (PIA) – SN Aboitiz Company recently donated a new fire truck to the  Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) here through the provincial government.


The fire truck, worth P1.6 million, was donated through the company’s  Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) fund.


The power company provides CSR funds to the provincial government yearly to help and improve the services of  various organizations and agencies in the province.


The fire truck has been recommended by the BFP through the provincial government in 2013 to boost the capabilities and firefighting resources of the agency in times of fire incidents.


Apolonio Diaz, provincial fire marshal, said the new fire truck will be a big help to their firefighting capabilities in the province.


“We are very grateful for this because finally, it was realized. Rest assured that our stakeholders will benefit from it especially during the suppression of fire incidents,” he said.


Diaz said the new fire truck will be deployed at the BFP provincial office in Bayombong town but it will also be dispatched to augment the resources and capabilities of BFP municipal stations in times of fire incidents.


The need for a new firetruck was also recommended by the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (PDRRMC).
