Fire Prevention Month Activities Continue
MARCH 18, 2023
Two activities in line with the observance of Fire Prevention Month of the Bureau of Fire Protection(BFP) were held earlier today, March 18 at Sitio Tapon, Hda. San Jose, Brgy. Guadalupe.
At least 34 sacks of non-biodegradable wastes mostly plastic bottles, food packaging and styrofoam were collected during the clean-up drive while more than 100 children ages 5-12 years old, including adults enjoyed the champorado and bread prepared by the BFP personnel in the feeding program.
They also received slippers from the Nabingkalan San Carlos Eagles Club as part of its community outreach.
Deputy Fire Marshal SFO3 Julius Jovia of BFP-San Carlos said the activity is part of their community service aimed at showing people that firemen not only serve during fire emergencies but also extend help to the community in other ways.
Jovia added that it’s also a way of encouraging people to do their part in the community.
Lorena Remotigue, 46-year-old resident of Sitio Tapon and mother of 3 beneficiaries, thanked the BFP for bringing in said program to their community.
She said she may not change the whole community with more than 100 households but she’d want to see change starting in her household as they participate in the cleanup drive.
Representatives of the Philippine National Police, City Environment Management Office, Gaisano Capital-San Carlos, SacaSol Inc. and Art Nature also joined the activities.
The BFP-San Carlos will also facilitate the Inter-Barangay Fire Olympics before the cumination of the Fire Prevention Month on March 31.
