Las Piñas City Mayor Vergel “Nene” Aguilar enjoined city residents Monday to make everyday a fire prevention day, citing their active participation in ensuring that safety measures are strictly observed to save lives and property from fire.
Aguilar stressed that community involvement plays a significant part in fire deterrence and during emergency response operations.
He cited a recent fire incidence in the city that was immediately contained with the quick response of the city fire personnel and the full cooperation of volunteer fire brigades and the residents.
“Protection of lives and property must be our supreme consideration in any instance, especially in situations we can control,” Aguilar said, pointing out that prevention plays a vital role in avoiding danger.
The call was sounded off as he reminded the residents to be vigilant, like ensuring safe LPG tank and stove, and no overloading of power capacity or octopus connections to avoid short circuit.
