Lady Firefighters of BFP Butuan Conduct Fire Prevention Lectures
Newly integrated 6 lady fire fighters of the Bureau of Fire Protection maximize their time by conducting lectures on fire prevention to Fire Safety Officers established by Butuan Doctor’s Hospital.
The BFP urged participants to be responsible in their workplaces to prevent fire incidents.
Fire Inspector Rey Antonio Restauro, Acting City Fire Marshall said his team conducts fire prevention campaign in schools, malls, offices, hotels and various organizations to educate the public on fire prevention.
Although March was declared as the Fire Prevention Month, the BFP-Butuan upon request holds lectures on fire prevention for free as part of their continuing endeavor.
SFO1 Deborah Llanus speaks on the importance of acquiring knowledge how to suppress fire and emphasize that the best way to handle an emergency is to prevent it from happening.
A lecture on different classes of fire was also included to equip participants of the significant understanding how to be able to react on emergency situations in case fire occurred in the hospital and the proper use of fire extinguishers.
A fire drill will be scheduled next week to complete the learning of hospital staff of Butuan Doctor’s Hospital.
SFO1 Jujie Jalas likewise informed participants that the BFP is not only responding to fire incidents, but also to other calamities.
“Conducting lectures is the BFP’s goal to continually provide fire prevention and life safety programs and to educate all citizens of Butuan through presentations and interactive events like the fire drill,” added SFO1 Jalas in her lecture.
