Marinduque firefighters on fire after Duterte, BFP citation
It was probably the hottest day of their lives.
With President Duterte himself handing them the award, members of the Boac Fire Station were on fire as they were named 2017 Best Municipal Fire Station in the Philippines.
Duterte handed the award to Boac Municipal Fire Marshall Felix Echavaria, Jr. during BFP’s Anniversary themed “BFP at 26, Embracing the Challenge of Sustaining its Commitment Towards a Fire Safe Community” at the AFP theatre in Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City early August.
The award was based on their active participation in government activities, quick and strict coordination with the local government, prompt and efficient rescue operations during calamities and fire and delivery of effective seminars and drills against fire for the community.
Apart from the plaque of appreciation, the BFP-Boac also received a P10,000 cash incentive.
