AS THE country observes the first day of the annual Fire Prevention Month, the Bureau of Fire Protection urged families to learn how to keep their homes safe from fire.
In this year's theme, “Matuto Ka! Sunog, Iwasan Na,” BFP stressed the importance of learning from past experiences with fire or from prior knowledge on how to prevent fire at home.
March is observed as Fire Prevention or Burn Prevention Month under Proclamation No. 115-A signed by President Ferdinand Marcos and Proclamation No. 360 in 1986.
