INSP ELMER ACAPUYAN, Municipal Fire Marshal said in his message that the involvement of the citizenry particularly barangay officials and Tanods is very essential to propagate fire safety awareness. This activity will not only enhance their knowledge and skills in firefighting and rescue operations but also promoting camaraderie and in sustaining their neighboring barangays in times of emergency.
