The newly designated Acting City Fire Marshal Sr. Inspector Marlon K. Chomling pays a courtesy call to Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo to present his credentials and plans to keep the city safe from major fire incidents.
Sr. Inspector Chomling, accompanied by SF01 Earl Manny Uy, also discussed with Mayor Remollo areas of cooperation between the Bureau of Fire Protection and the City Government of Dumaguete in terms of support to personnel development and provision of equipment.
In its latest report to Mayor Remollo, the number of fire incidents dropped by almost half in 2021 compared to the year 2020 and without any fatalities.
The City Bureau of Fire Protection will also inspect thousands of business establishments and structures for the renewal of their permits to determine if they are complying with the mandates of the Fire Code of the Philippines so they will be issued the Fire Safety Inspection Certificate (FSIC).
