by Gaby B. Keith / PIO

The Baguio City Fire Station (BCFS) has re-inspected for fire safety 19,243 business establishments from January to August, compared to 17,150 for the same period last year. This represents  an increase of 12.20 percent.

S/Insp. Katherine Albino reported in Monday’s flag-raising ceremony  at the City Hall that 18,567 business establishments were issued with Fire Safety Inspection Certificates this year showing an increase of 8.92 percent, compared to 17,045 issued last year.

From January to August this year, the BCFS collected P8,217,163.28 in fire code fees representing a 20.28 percent increase, compared to the P6,831,290.20 during the same period last year.

Albino said 91 fire safety seminars were conducted this year which is less than the 190 held in 2016 while 64 fire brigades were organized and trained from January to August 2017 as compared to 44 for the same period last year or an increase of 45.45 percent.

The BCFS also recorded 49 fire incidents from January to August this year, compared to 52 during the same period in 2016 or a decrease of 5.76 percent.

Albino said there were 104 emergency and rescue calls recorded this year while 150 were recorded last year or a decrease of 30.66 percent.

She said the BCFS was awarded as the Best City Fire Station in the Cordillera during the Bureau of Fire Protection’s 26th anniversary celebration with the theme, “Embracing the challenge of sustaining its commitment towards a fire safe community.”

The city government was also given a token of recognition during the event for donating a lot and appropriating funds for the construction of the Aurora Hill Fire Sub-Station.

Meanwhile, members of the Cordillera Special Rescue Unit (SRU) headed by S/Insp. Victor Sayapen, Jr. were also presented to officials and employees last Monday.

The SRU was established in 1998 by the BFP as a counterpart to the Philippine National Police’s Special Action Force.

Six SRU members are currently assigned at the BCFS.

Albino said BFP’s two main responsibilities that include fire prevention where it conducts inspection, education and information activities. The second is fire suppression when an actual fire incident occur where the preservation of human life is prioritized then the property involved.

“Our job is not confined to fire incidents, the BFP also responds to medical, emergency and rescue calls, including man-made and natural disasters,” she said.
