With the expected surge of fire incidents coinciding with the New Year’s Eve revelries, the Metropolitan Composite Fire and Rescue Volunteers will be on heightened alert from 30 December 2008 to 2 January 2009.
This goes without saying that fire incidents that will arise will be immediately responded to by MCFRVI in as much as conditions and limitations would permit.
MCFRVI would be responding from the general area of Visayas Avenue in Quezon City during this time and average response time would be ten to fifteen minutes within a 20 kilometer radius. Needless to say that fire incidents needing assistance outside the radius would likewise be dispatched to.
It is expected that with the reported uptrend of firecracker sales, fire incidents that coincide with the welcoming of the New Year would likewise be as significant as the previous New Year’s Eves.
For immediate dispatch to fire incidents this New Year’s Eve, you may call the Association of Philippine Volunteer Fire Brigades at landline number 522-2222 or cellphone number 0910-522-2222. The nearest fire volunteer unit to you will respond.
Or you may also call us direct through our hotline at 381-HELP(4357).
