The Iloilo City Government is acquiring a new fire truck as part of its continuing efforts toward achieving a disaster-resilient city.

According to Mayor Jerry P. Treรฑas, the additional unit will be stationed in one of the Iloilo City Action and Resilience (ICARE) Centers.

The cityโ€™s ICARE Centers in strategic locations house frontline services including the police, City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office, Public Safety and Transportation Management Office, and fire personnel, bringing emergency and disaster management closer to the people.

Once the fire truck arrives, Treรฑas said the city government will donate this to the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP)-Iloilo City to help boost their fire-fighting capability.

He initially requested the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) for additional fire truck for Iloilo City, however, the agency is currently prioritizing local government units that have no fire truck yet.

โ€œThus, I instructed to procure a fire truck because we have ICARE centers and some of them do not have fire a truck yet,โ€ the city mayor added.

Meanwhile, the city is also expecting a ladder truck, which can reach a 14-storey building. This is a donation from Korea through the effort of former BFP- 6 director Chief Superintendent Jerry Candido.

While the city government is acquiring necessary equipment for BFP, it is also strengthening its campaign on fire prevention especially this March as Fire Prevention Month.

The city mayor appealed to the public to be alert and always ensure the safety of their homes and establishments against possible fire. (Iloilo City PIO)
