CITY OF MALOLOS – As part of its continuous effort to increase public awareness and encourage a proactive approach to fire safety, the Provincial Government of Bulacan through the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDDRMO) has lined up various fire prevention activities as the nation marks the observance of Fire Prevention Month this March.

Bulacan Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado will lead the Bulakenyos in this year’s celebration with the theme “Sunog at Sakuna Paghandaan, Kalikasan ay Pangalagaan nang Matamasa ang Pag-unlad ng Bayan”.

On March 1, 2013, a Walk for a Fire Free and Safe Nation will kick off at 5 am starting from the Mini Forest in the Capitol Compound which will be participated by the Department of Interior and Local Government, local government units, non-government organizations, and private sectors among others.

The month-long observance will also feature unannounced fire and earthquake drill at the Capitol Building to test the employees’ capacity, behavior and knowledge in doing their duties during and after an earthquake or fire.

According to PDRRMO executive officer Felicisima Mungcal, they will conduct training and seminar on Fire Suppression and First Aid/Basic Life Support and Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (BLS-CPR) for every ten employees per department in the provincial government.

Further, to take precautionary measures in controlling unwanted fire incidents and to make sure those buildings are complying with the building Fire Codes, the PDRRMO will make a Fire Safety Inspection in identified government and non-government establishments in Bulacan.

There will also be massive information dissemination on March 4 as the PDDRMO distributes fliers, leaflets and emergency/distress whistles during the first Monday Flag Ceremony at the Bulacan Capitol Gymnasium.

Meanwhile, a bloodletting activity is set on March 26, 8 am at the PDDRMO as part of the Fire Prevention Month celebration. ###
