Mahinog, Camiguin – A brand new fire truck will be delivered soon to this municipality to augment the Bureau of Fire Protection's (BFP) firefighting capability.
This was announced by Mayor Alex R. Jajalla and Vice Mayor Rogerio C. Acle at the LGU Christmas party on Friday.
The fire truck will be delivered before the end of this month if there are no changes in the delivery schedule to the BFP from their supplier, it was learned.
Mayor Jajalla said the provision of additional fire truck to Mahinog has been made possible through the congressional initiative of Congressman Pedro P. Romualdo.
At present the municipality, the gateway to Camiguin, has one unit fire truck.
Jajalla and Acle expressed their gratitude to Congressman Romualdo and BFP for helping the municipality boost its fire fighting capability.
"This new fire truck will really make a big difference in our fire prevention preparedness measures," Jajalla said.
Acle, for his part, welcomed the development as this will address the municipality's needs for fire fighting equipment.
Romualdo, in his letter to the mayor, expressed hope that this equipment will be put to good use and will be maintained well by the municipality.
"This is part of my commitment to our constituents to be fire and disaster-ready at all times," Romualdo said. (Mahinog IO)
