Danao City proudly celebrated the blessing and turnover of its state-of-the-art Danao City Fire Station Building. The city’s fire service department received a generous boost, with a remarkable 25-million-peso budget from the National Headquarters of the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP). Adding to this, the 1,156-square-meter lot, graciously provided by the City Government, has paved the way for an upgraded and strategically located facility.
Here in Danao we will always welcome you with open arms, for there is no better use to our city-owned lot than to make it the site of our city’s Fire Station… Truly, this upgrade would be beneficial to the people of Danao
