Bong Go aids fire victims in Manila

The team of Sen. Bong Go went to Baseco, Manila to provide immediate assistance to residents whose houses were damaged by a recent fire incident in Barangay 649. 

Go’s team distributed masks, vitamins, grocery packs, and meals to the affected families at the Baseco covered court on Monday, 8 August.   

Go sent support to the 39 affected families and gave them reassurance that the modernization of the Bureau of Fire Protection is well underway to help it deal with fire-related incidents faster and more efficiently. 

The BFP Modernization Act of 2021, which Go primarily authored and co-sponsored, mandates the agency to undergo a ten-year modernization program which includes the provision of specialized training, expansion of manpower, and acquisition of new and advanced fire equipment, among others. 

“Napakahalaga po talaga na mabigyan natin ng suporta ang BFP dahil napakahalaga rin ng mandato nila na kailangan gampanan upang makapagligtas ng buhay,” expressed Go in his video message. 

“Halos linggo-linggo tayong bumababa sa mga nasunugan. Nakikita ko ng personal ang hirap ng ating mga kababayan na nasunugan. Kahit isang bahay lang po ang masunog, damay po pati ang kapitbahay. Maraming pamilya ang apektado. Kaya po dapat lang na palakasin ang kapasidad ng BFP sa pagresponde sa sunog,” he underscored.
