Said activity was divided into two sessions – morning and afternoon shifts.The morning shift was participated by more or less fifty (50) employees while the afternoon shift had almost two hundred (200) participants. Among the topics discussed were the BFP legal mandates emphasizing the public’s common perception towards BFP’s function as firefighters and the role of the community as first responder; RA 9514 also known as the Fire Code of the Philippines; proper handling and maintenance of fire extinguisher; fire behavior, fire triangle fire classification, fire and earthquake drill; and basic first aid which includes soft tissue injury management, AR-CPR application, emergency rescue transport, spine board management, splinting and bandaging; There was also an orientation on the phases of earthquake drill and a fire drill where employees experienced extinguishing the fire using their available first aid fire protection appliance and the company’s standpipe.

The activity aims to encourage the employees to practice fire safety particularly in their workplace to avoid any untoward incidents. “The awareness brought to them will surely mold them to become a responsible individual and be part of the country’s progress” said City Fire Marshal SInsp Marcial. (BAR,PIA-5/Sorsogon/ BFP City)
