13K fire incidents are reported by BFP for 2022.
From January 1 to December 26 of this year, according to data from the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), fewer fires occurred nationwide by 4.02 percent.
According to BFP spokesperson Supt. Annalee Carbajal-Atienza, there were 13,029 fires reported between January 1 and December 26, which is 4.02 percent fewer than the 13,574 fires reported over the same time period in 2021.
Atienza claimed that while there was a decline in the number of fires across the nation, there was an increase in the number of fires started by fireworks or firecrackers.
According to the records, 19 fireworks or firecracker-related occurrences were reported in 2022 as opposed to seven the year before.
Atienza asked the populace to see the fireworks displays planned by their local governments as a substitute for using firecrackers and fireworks to ring in the new year.
She urged people to utilize homemade noisemakers to ring in the new year rather than risking their safety by using firecrackers.
She continued by advising every family to practice an emergency drill at home so they can respond to potential flames.
Families should discuss where fire extinguishers are located, where fire exits are, and what to do in case of a fire, she advised.
Additionally, she reaffirmed that sufficient BFP personnel and fire trucks are currently stationed in key locations, particularly in Metro Manila, in readiness for the New Year’s celebrations.
