INCASE OF FIRE: Dial 8330-2344 (COMMEL)
A modern fire service fully – capable of ensuring a fire-safe nation by 2034
We commit to prevent and suppress destructive fires; investigate its causes; enforce Fire Code and other related laws; respond to man-made and natural disasters and other emergencies.
Firefighters are the silent heroes of the community because they save lives and property and take their active role as frontlines during this COVID 19 pandemic scenario. In every response they do, they risk their lives. Aside from responding to all kinds of emergencies and disaster calls, the BFP also performs its mandates in teaching the community about safety to mitigate and prepare them for the hazards present in their communities.
The challenge of Covid-19 during these times put the Quezon City Fire District’s resiliency and preparedness to test. Meeting the expectations of the public through these challenging times will not hinder the performance of QCFD in reaching the people. The unanticipated risk brought by the pandemic stirred up the virtue of our District Fire Director to turn a crisis into an opportunity to improve and innovate new techniques.
Conceptualizing the #SAFEQC had led the organization to move forward as soon as SSUPT JOE FERNAND L BANGYOD, DSC, the District Fire Director was designated to the position. The program changes the game by dealing with the unfamiliar COVID-19 effectively through an unfamiliar approach. The fresh ideas and leadership of the district fire director made an impact on each personnel and influenced them to have self-development and further improve the fire stations’ facilities. QCFD also successfully launched a studio for video creation of Brigada Eskwela sa Bahay using social media accounts (“Bfp-Ncr Fire District 5 Quezon City” FB Page and “Quezon City Fire District” youtube Channel) as a platform for educating and providing relevant information to the public. The said program was also on its way to develop an online application for new Fire Safety Inspection Certificates and Fire Safety Evaluation Certificates and Renewal for a more accessible and easier transaction. As social media is the most effective means of communication now a day, the QCFD takes its advantage to deliver safety lectures to the people. Furthermore, Mobile Swabbing/Testing Facilities also personally touched the people in the barangay level. With this, back to back approach of QCFD both accessible physically and through social media aims to strengthen the bond between Firefighters and the Citizens. The term #SAFEQC, which stands for Stay Alert, Focused, and Empowered Quezon City has been coined to serve as a guide for the main objective of QCFD’s approach to new normal.
