The Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) turned over a P17.5 million fire truck to Puerto Princesa City on Monday.
Mayor Lucilo Bayron unveiled the modern firefighting equipment during the flag raising ceremony with Senior Fire Inspector Nilo Caabay, the fire marshall of the BFP-Puerto Princesa.
“Ito ang pinaka-modernong fire truck at ito ay may firefighting capability kahit hanggang sa ika-walong palapag ng building,” he told Palawan News.
Caabay said the city government shouldered the P150,000 transportation cost from Manila to Puerto Princesa.
He said except for the Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA), the fire truck is equipped with other important firefighting accessories.
“Almost a week lang yan ang processing nyan, sinagot na ng city government ang transportation. Ito ang pinaka high-end na firetruck sa ating bansa. SCBA lang wala nyan, pero the rest kung ano ang meron sa isang operation meron yan,” he said.
Caabay explained there are 300 similar units distributed across the country, and Puerto Princesa City was the only recipient in the entire MIMAROPA region.
