The Bureau of Fire Protection-Naga City Central Fire Station is continuing its campaign to strengthen its program in connection with the celebration of Fire Prevention Month this March.

This month’s program includes an earthquake and fire drill, the continuation of their Oplan: Ligtas na Pamayanan, a road show to showcase personnel uniforms, equipment, and materials to students, as well as inspections of various schools and establishments.

In BFP-NCCFS’ report, there are 14 recorded fire cases in the city this year, two in January, seven in February, and four grass fires this month. Chief Inspector Marc Allan C. Consuegra, the Acting City Fire Marshal, highlighted that the usual causes of these fires are electric-related, including electrical overloading, defective outlets, and leaving unattended appliances plugged in.

On the other hand, the chief assured that the city has enough trucks and equipment to respond to the needs during fire incidents. The office currently owns six fire trucks and one rescue truck.

“Good housekeeping and extra caution.” This is what the chief reiterated when asked about his advice to residents. Keeping the house in order can help prevent further accidents such as fires.

BFP-NCCFS continues to conduct fire safety training, drills, and seminars in different schools and establishments as part of the celebration.
