March is being observed as Fire Prevention Month here in the Philippines–a perfect time to discuss and raise awareness about the causes, hazards, and dangers of fire.
By virtue of Proclamation No. 115-A, signed by then President Ferdinand E. Marcos, and Proclamation No. 360 in 1986, the month of March was declared as “Fire Prevention Month” or “Burn Prevention Month.”
The Bureau of Fire Protection and Barbaza Multi-Purpose Cooperative urged the public to be more aware of the causes of fire incidents and to observe all safety measures, in observance of the Fire Prevention Month.
