CSF Holds Second Barangay Fire Olympics [ Wednesday, 6th of April 2016 | 2 years ago ]
The local government here in coordination with the Bureau of Fire Protection conducted today the 2nd City of San Fernando Fire Olympics to strengthen the capabilities of barangay fire brigades.
Held at the Heroes Hall, the event tested the fire response skills of this city’s barangays. Participants competed in drills set by BFP on modified rescue and transfer relay; modified bucket relay; and modified flammable liquid fire extinguishments.
In an interview, Mayor Edwin D. Santiago said that updating the capabilities of barangay personnel is very important since they are part of the first line of defense of the local government during emergencies.
“We trained our barangay to become prepared because they are often the first ones to help each other before rescuers can come to their aid” he added.
The mayor underscored the need to keep improving and refining techniques to adapt to worst-case scenarios.
The barangay fire brigade from Barangay Sta. Lucia was crowned the grand champion, followed by Del Rosario, 1st Runner up, and Sindalan and Telebastagan, tied at 3rd place.
