For the event, program experts from the Bureau of Fire Protection, Office of Civil Defense, and DSWD FO NCR – Disaster Response Management Division were invited.
FIRE PREVENTION MONTH
Manila Deputy District Fire Director, Leo A Andiso, reminds everyone to be proactive in acquiring knowledge and strategies about making oneself and family safe from fire incidents. Also, he encourages everyone to be vigilant and to refrain from using sub-standard electrical wires as it is the most common cause of the fire.
