Bacolor, Pampanga – “SA PAG-IWAS SA SUNOG, HINDI KA NAG-IISA!” The theme for this year’s Fire Prevention and Awareness Month aptly describes Corporate Guarantee’s yearly advocacy. This campaign, extensively communicated by the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) and the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), was incepted in 1967 under Proclamation No. 115-A. Corporate Guarantee – as part of its conscious effort of corporate public service and social responsibility – has embraced this annual campaign in cooperation with the BFP, in the last decade.
Content with social media and digital efforts in the last two years due to the pandemic, Corporate Guarantee this year assembled a large classroom type, intensive lecture on Fire Prevention and Awareness facilitated by the Bureau of Fire Protection. Prevalent restrictions on Covid-19 had steadily loosened up, opening opportunities and restoring some semblance of normalcy, albeit protocols as required by the IATF remain strictly observed. Spearheading the executive group from Corporate Guarantee is Mr. Levy Adrian A. Laus – Marketing Head, Ms. Rosanna C. Alcazar – Vice President for Sales and Marketing and Ms. Eden S. Ronquillo – Assistant Vice President and Administration Head.
The event took place at Max’s Restaurant in Bacolor, Pampanga. It was attended by managers, safety officers and representatives of LausGroup’s business affiliates from the different auto dealerships, ancillary businesses, and F&B businesses within Pampanga. The team of BFP led by Senior Inspector Ryan L. Pascual, Acting City Fire Marshall of the City of San Fernando, conducted the very informative seminar, which culminated with a pre-recorded demonstration on the use of dry chemical extinguishers, how to subdue Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) leaks and fires, basics on vehicular accident mitigation as a first on-the-scene civilian responder, and an actual hands-on demonstration by attendees on the use of fire extinguishers.
“Hindi po biro ang masalanta ng apoy. Sa isang iglap lang, matutupok sa abo ang lahat ng ating naipundar at pinaghirapan.” Ms. Rose C. Alcazar, VP for Sales and Marketing of Corporate Guarantee vividly conveys in her closing message. “As always, we thank our main partners in this advocacy, the Bureau of Fire Protection, who have always been there to help us with our endeavors.” Alcazar later concluded.
