Fire safety inspections underway in Capiz

by A. Lumaque

Roxas City (29 May) -- An inspection of all school buildings, student dormitories and boarding houses is being conducted by the Office of the Roxas City Fire Marshal (OCFM) of the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) to ensure that these establishments are complying with the fire safety standards under the fire code of the Philippines.

The fire safety inspection is in line with a Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) directive to BFP Director Jose E. Collado and all BFP regional directors in anticipation of the opening of classes next month.

An “Oplan Balik Eskwela 2007” command conference was presided over by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo at the P. Burgos Elementary School along Altura St. in Sta. Mesa, Manila to ensure the smooth opening of classes.

“The fire safety inspection is carried out with lectures on a case to case basis,” said OCFM Chief Pancho dela Cruz.

A proposal to conduct fire drill in collaboration with other concerned government agencies and non-government organizations is being finalized by the OCFM for implementation by July, noted dela Cruz.

In the DILG directive, the BFP officials are directed to immediately formed their respective teams and start their inspection and submit reports of compliance with the instruction.

“Our primary concern in this renewed campaign is the safety of our students,” DILG Undersecretary for Public Safety Marius Corpus said, adding that the inspection will include day care centers. (PIA) [top]
