BFP to train kids on emgc preparedness
by Pamela Mariz Geminiano / PNA

The Bureau of Fire Protection in the Cordillera will train children on emergency preparedness, its chief said on Tuesday.

BFP-Cordillera Director Maria Sofia Mendoza said teaching children evacuation procedures during a real-life fire or emergency situation is one way of educating and instilling in them the importance of preparedness and resiliency.

“Emergencies can happen anytime and we were taught that everyone should be prepared to handle these safely and effectively, including the children,” Mendoza said.

The fire safety road show will be held at the SM Atrium on April 11.

She said there is a need to equip children with the skills on emergency response to help themselves or their families during disasters. One of the activities is escaping from a building that is “on fire.”

“The children, aged six to 12 (years), will experience hands-on learning of basic life support, including cardiopulmonary resuscitation, ropemanship, fire suppression, and rappelling,” she said.

She said that children must also take part in the planning and practice of evacuation drills in their homes.

She also said that children must know what emergency numbers to call to ask for help. “If there is a home fire, children should evacuate before calling,” she said.

“If there’s a fire, get everybody out of the building, stay out, and call for help. Don’t go back into the home to get belongings,” she said.

The road show is part of the information education campaign of the BFP to educate the youth on what to do during a fire emergency.
