The senator also led the launching of one of the two fire stations in Las Pinas donated by Deputy House Speaker Camille Villar, located at Hansuyin Village in Brgy. Talon. Another new fire station was built in Brgy. Almanza 2.
“We need to be safe and be aware of what to do to guarantee that we will not endanger the lives and limbs of everyone and their properties due to fires,” stressed Villar.
She spelled out safety measures to prevent the occurrence of fires. They are as follows:
-Unplug gadgets not in use as they can be a potential fire hazard. Electronics like TVs, radios, and gaming consoles can experience a surge, causing them to heat up and start a fire.
-Keep an eye on any flame.
Avoid leaving unattended any fire in your home like a stove or candle. Do not leave an LPG open.
-Check all electrical connections regularly.
-Ensure that there are no obstacles in points of exit to easily go out of the house in case of an emergency.
By virtue of Proclamation 115-A, the country celebrates March as “Fire Prevention Month” since 1966 to bolster public awareness to avert fires.
