BFP stresses public vigilance, cooperation in preventing fires
by Joseph B. Zambrano / PIA

Vigilance and precaution are still the best means to prevent fire.
This is the message of the Bureau of Fire Protection as it leads the observance of Fire Prevention Month.

Senior Fire Officer Irene Borja of BFP Cordillera said fire incidents are mainly caused by negligence thus the constant reminder to the public of their responsibility to ensure safety and prevent loss of life and property.

With this year’s theme, “Buhay at ari-arian ay pahalagaan, ibayong pag-iingat sa sunog ay sa sariling pamamahay simulan,” the BFP said as it called on citizens, schools, companies, and communities to be alert, be involved, and cooperate to avert fire.

For the period January 2016 to February 2017, 233 structural and 219 non-structural mostly forest, grass and rubbish fires regionwide, occurred.

The BFP has issued a few tips to prevent fire:  matches, flammable liquids, lighters and other combustible materials should be properly stored to keep away from children; candles or lighted mosquito coils should never be left unattended and should be placed away from curtains, paper, and other materials that easily catch fire.

In the event of fire, one should know what immediate steps to take to keep it from spreading. Small fires may be extinguished by smothering the flame with a non-flammable item like a pot cover or a dampened towel or blanket.

Water should be used only for non-electrical fires and fires not caused by gasoline and similar combustible fluids.

In the face of apparent danger, run to a safe place and allow trained fire fighters to handle the situation.
