19 fires recorded in Dec 2016, highest in the Cordillera – BFP
by Jane B. Cadalig

The Bureau of Fire Protection reiterated its call for the public to practice fire preventive measures, saying negligence remains the major cause of fires.

The BFP made the call in light of the 19 fire incidents that damaged several properties in the Cordillera in the last month of 2016.

BFP-Cordillera Chief of Operations Francisco Copes said nine fire incidents were recorded in Benguet from Dec. 1 to 31, 2016, the highest number recorded in the region.

The figure includes the blaze that rendered more than 300 families homeless in Poblacion, Mankayan three days before Christmas Day last year.

For the period, Kalinga and Mountain Province each recorded three fire occurrences while Abra and Ifugao each had two. Apayao has no fire record during the month.

Copes said the BFP is elated that not one of the fires recorded during the period was caused by firecrackers, but asked the public to help the agency protect lives and properties from the destructions wrought by fires.

“We want the public to help us by practicing the preventive measures we advocate when we have our interactions in the barangays,” Copes said.

He said households should not take for granted the fire prevention tips, such as ensuring the safety of their electrical connections and LPG tanks.

“The reminders we give are very simple, but they must be observed and followed because ignoring these seemingly simple matters can cause great damage,” he said.
