CEBU CITY, Philippines — Personnel of the Bureau of Fire Protection in Central Visayas (BFP-7) bagged several awards during the recently concluded National Fire Olympics 2022 in Davao City.
BFP-7 topped three out of four activities in the Fire Olympics held from August 13 to 15, 2022. BFP-7 logged wins in the Bands Musiklaban, Fireground Search and Rescue Challenge, and Search and Rescue Attack (SARA).
BFP-7’s The Firewalls Band was the champion for the BFP Band Muziklaban. The team also won the best in keyboards and lead guitar special awards. This was also recognized as the band of the crowd.
“Taking home these awards gave the BFP 7 a positive image not only within our organization but most especially to the public whom we dedicate our services. At the same time, it uplifts the confidence and morale of our personnel which will surely inspire them to always do more in fulfilling our motto, to save lives and properties, and at the same time do fire safety awareness through music,” said Senior Superintendent Fritzie Manatad, chief public information officer of BFP-7.
In its FB post, Toledo City Fire Station also extended warm congratulatory messages to their personnel, FO1 April Rey Pongase, for winning the best Lead Guitarist. FO1 Christopher Labajo from this station also participated in this activity as the band’s bass guitarist.
