Gov. Padilla urges BFP to suppress grass fires
BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya (PIA) – Governor Ruth Padilla here has encouraged the employees of the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) to double their efforts in suppressing grass fires in the province.
“We hope to have a follow-up on this campaign so that we can protect our environment from being destroyed because of human actions,” Padilla said during the recently held first fire safety summit at the Ammungan Hall here.
She also called on public vigilance over the rampant occurrences of grass fires and residential fires in the province.
The governor also assured the BFP of her support in terms of assisting its appeal for the provision of additional fire trucks, municipal fire stations and other resources.
According to Padilla, Representative Carlos Padilla has already raised the issue on the share of the BFP from their annual remittances of fire code fees collected from their respective provinces and municipalities.
She said the members of the Union of the Local Government Authorities in the Philippines(ULAP) have already assured by Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) secretary Mar Roxas on the upcoming release of at least 460 fire trucks to the local government units.
Padilla said neighboring towns with short proximity will be clustered to be serviced by one fire truck while others will have one each.
“We will prioritize those LGUs with far distances so that they can have their own fire truck,” she said.#BME
