Mar 7, 2018 @ 7:59

Summer is officially on, and the provincial government of Bulacan recognized the importance of readiness in case of fire during this season.

Bulacan Governor Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado advises Bulakenyos to follow the reminders in order to prevent fire and other related incidents this season.

The Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMO) -Bulacan Rescue and Bureau of Fire Protection has partnered with concerned agencies to disseminate safety and fire prevention tips to residents.

On Monday, the provincial government also formally launched the observance of Fire Prevention Month. The observance will be anchored on the theme “Ligtas na Pilipinas ang Ating Hangad, Pag-iingat sa Sunog ay sa Sarili Ipatupad”.

Chief Insp. Amando Elevado, Bulacan provincial fire marshal, provided Bulakenyos with some tips to avoid incidents of fire that may destroy lives and properties.

“To prevent fire, it is best to have a pail of water inside the house, unplug appliances when not in use or rest them for 30 minutes, focus when cooking, inspect all electrical wirings yearly, be knowledgeable on how to properly use an LPG or liquefied petroleum gas, follow all safety guidelines of the authorities in terms of fire prevention, and memorize the emergency hotlines ‎7910566, ‎4260209, and 911,” Elevado said.

“Let us remember that fire is not a natural cause. Ninety percent of fire incidents were caused by people. The safety of our properties and the lives of our loved ones are in our hands,” he added.
