The NEDA Western Visayas culminated the observance of the National Disaster Resilience Month (NDRM) with the conduct of an Orientation-Demo on Fire Safety and Evacuation Procedures for NEDA employees and a Kiddie Fire-Preparedness Roadshow on July 26, 2023 at the Regional Development Council Hall of the NEDA Regional Office VI (NRO VI).

Resource persons were uniformed personnel of the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), specifically, officers from the BFP – Community Relations Unit and Special Rescue Unit Jaro Sub-station. FO1 Hermar P. Sollano was the primary discussant for the morning Orientation-Demo with NEDA employees while SFO1 Elmer T. Napolis opened the Kiddie Roadshow in the afternoon.

The activities were geared towards preparing NEDAns and their children, ages 6 to 21 years old, for any fire incidents and enhancing their knowledge on basic fire-safety protocols and survival skills during fire emergencies.

NEDA VI successfully passed BFP’s fire drill/simulation exercise and building inspection for fire safety. (MMAabilo, FAD, NEDA VI)
