InterAksyon.com reports that Cagayan de Oro Representative Rufus Rodriguez and his brother Maximo, who represents the Anak Mindanao party-list, released the findings of a study that just how much our country lacks in terms of fire protection.

 

According to the Rodriguezes, "at least 645 towns do not have fire stations, while 666 others make do with old and dilapidated fire trucks." The report noted: "The number of towns account for almost 87 percent of the country's 1,512 municipalities."

 

Rep. Rodriguez pointed out: "This could be the reason why there are around 800 to 900 fire incidents every month as per records of the Bureau of Fire Protection." Thus, he and his brother have filed House Resolution 2250 asking the committee on public order and safety to investigate why the towns lack the fire stations.
