DILG bestows posthumous award to slain fireman in Makati shooting

Manila (11 November) -- The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) recently bestowed a posthumous award to Fire Officer 3 Armando Bose after the fireman was shot dead when he refused to give his motorcycle to an armed man trying to escape from authorities.

DILG Sec. Jesse Robredo presented the Medalya ng Kadakilaan to Bose's wife, Jhona Bose, during the firefighter's wake at Barangay Gulod in Novaliches, Quezon City.

Robredo and Undersecretary Rico Puno also handed out a financial assistance check to the late fireman's family.

"His act of self-sacrifice has depicted the true picture of a real firefighter who is truly admirable and worthy of praise and emulation," Robredo said.

Aside from the recognition, the Bureau of Fire Protection also handed out a Special Financial Assistance to Boses' family worth P169,000. This is equivalent to his six months salary.

Likewise, the BFP Mutual Benefits Association Inc. will give other benefits to the family.

The Makati City government, meanwhile, shouldered the late fireman's hospital expenses.

Bose is survived by his wife and two children.

Aboard his motorcycle, Bose was on his way to work at the BFP command post near the West Tower Condominium when an armed suspect allegedly stopped him along Evangelista Street in Barangay Bangkal and tried to steal his motorcycle.

He resisted and was reportedly shot by the assailant on his head and left arm. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
