City holds first Fire Summit

IN keeping with its Clean and Safe City program, Dagupan City, in partnership with the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), conducted the first-ever Fire Safety Summit on March 27 and attended by engineers, architects, business owners and traders at the city museum.

City Fire Marshal Chief Inspector Georgian DM Pascua said the summit was aimed at informing the public on the requirements of the fire code of the country which, he said, “only a few people are yet aware of.”

“We want to familiarize them with the requirements so that they will not spend more time and money preparing documents that are not supposed to be included,” said Pascua.

Mayor Belen T. Fernandez hailed the summit, saying that this is one of the serious efforts to put everyone’s acts together and stave off the threats of destruction to lives and property.

“We are fortunate that agencies of government and our fellow workers have come together to make sure that our city is a community that is safe for everyone to live, to study, to do business and to raise a family,” said Fernandez. “We shall not leave our fate and our security to chance,” she added.

“In all our past experiences in dealing with these elements, our city has altogether learned a way of life of preparedness and a culture of safety,” said Fernandez.

Among the topics discussed during the summit were Rule 10 of Republic Act 9514 which deals on the fire safety measures and processing of Fire Safety Inspection Certificate for occupancy; building permit and occupancy permit processing; and business permit processing. (CIO/JCB)
