March is Fire Prevention Month
The observance of Fire Prevention Month in the Philippines began in 1967, under Presidential Proclamation No. 115-A, which was issued by former and late President Ferdinand E. Marcos on November 17, 1966. March was chosen as the fire prevention month, as it marks the start of the hot and dry season here in the Philippines which most fires occur.
The Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), the lead agency in the celebration, is calling on all citizens, schools, companies, and communities to be alert, vigilant, and cooperative to avert the incidence of fire. This agency has only limited resources and we can't just rely with them. Our firefighters and other agencies are doing their best to protect our lives and property when incidents of fire was occurred. The public vigilance and precaution remain the best means for fire prevention. Let us do our share in this regard.
Prevention is better than cure
Be aware, fire-safe and free!
