The Batasan Hills Fire Brigade, headed by Purok Leader Arvin Dimzon, did not waste any minute upon receiving a call from the neighboring Barangay Commonwealth to help in putting out a 3-alarm fire along Uwak Street in the afternoon of August 6, 2015 (Thursday).
On June 28, 2015 and every Sunday thereafter, firefighting training workshops are conducted at the Barangay Hall from 9:00 AM until about 3:00 PM. The objective of the series of short courses is to prepare volunteer firefighters in conquering hell.
A lot believes that fire, like any other accident, is inevitable. While it is partly true that emergency situations seem unavoidable, Captain John “Jojo” M. Abad and Kagawad Roberto “Bobby” B. Miras, chairmen of the Barangay Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Committee (BDRRMC), stand by their credence that people can always control even that which is bound to happen.
