Sen. Cynthia Villar and Rep. Camille Villar join observance of Fire Prevention Month, cites firefigthers

In observance of the Fire Prevention Month, Sen. Cynthia Villar and Las Pinas Rep. Camille Villar, acknowledged the heroic deeds and sacrifices of our firefighters during a seminar aired LIVE on Facebook, which also offered "tips" to guarantee fire safety and response.

Sen. Villar and Rep. Villar cited our firemen for their dedication and selfless services, even risking their own lives while battling off fires. They have also been at the forefront in responding to other forms of emergencies, tragedies and disasters.

"It's difficult to lose our homes and our properties to fires especially if we lost everything. It's very hard to recover. So we should learn safety standards and preventive measures to reduce, alleviate and minimize the occurence of fires and secure our belongings and even our lives," stressed Sen. Villar.

She further noted that her office, through the Villar SIPAG, has embarked on programs and projects to broaden the knowledge of the public on what to do during fires and how they can be prevented.

The FB seminar, in coordination with the Bureau of Fire Protection, had for its theme, "Sa pag-iwas sa sunog, hindi ka nag-iisa!" It was also sponsored by the Villar SIPAG Foundation.

The projects of the BFP Las Pinas and the initiatives of Sen. Villar and Rep. Villar were tackled during the FB program. It also delved on the role of BFP during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

In the seminar proper, fire prevention tips, first aid and demonstration video were also aired.

Towards the end of the program, bikes courtesy of AllBike and fire kits were raffled off.
