KMBI conducted its annual Fire Safety and Earthquake Drill last June 28 at KMBI Panay Office. The lecture was in coordination with the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) Paligsahan Fire Station. Fire officer Marvin Lamban led the orientation to the KMBI employees.
The BFP provides orientation to different organizations, establishments and households to impart basic knowledge on the nature and behavior of fire and to be familiar with the proper response procedures during fire emergency. This will also help increase awareness on fire safety and be more prepared in case of a fire incident. The BFP is also mandated to prevent and suppress destructive fires, conduct investigation, provide emergency medical and rescue services.
The fire and earthquake drill is in compliance with Republic Act 9514, otherwise known as the Fire Code of the Philippines of 2008, which mandates educating people on fire safety procedures and protocols.
