LAGAWE, Ifugao, March 22 (PIA) -- The Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) in the province hold an information education campaign to state workers in the province  on proper handling and operation of fire extinguishers and  what to do in case of fire incident.


This is in line with this year’s Fire Prevention Month theme of “Ligtas na Pilipinas ang Ating Hangad, Pag-iingat sa Sunog at sa Sarili Ipatupad.”

BFP personnel explained that the  proper operation of a fire extinguisher involves  the acronym PASS which P stands for pull the pin, A – aim the nozzle; S – squeeze the lever slowly and  S for Sweep from side to side.

After explaining the PASS and demonstrating it, the BFP encouraged the employees to try operating the fire suppression apparatus.

The BFP also reminded that in case of fire incident, people must alert other household members, find the ways out and evacuate immediately using the emergency exits, stay low by crawling the smoke. Use the fire extinguisher in putting out small fires. They advise people do not go back in burning structures.

Meanwhile, Vice Governor Jose Jordan Gullitiw stressed the important role of the community in fire prevention for a fire-free community as he enjoined them to do their part.

"Let us start fire prevention in our own homes. Safety practices should be taught in every household for us to be aware and ready," he said. Marcelo B. Lihgawon (JDP/MBL- PIA CAR, Ifugao)
