ROXAS CITY—A new fire truck was turned over by Federation of Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (FFCCCII) Panay Island Board Member Dr. Henry O. Chusuey in a simple ceremony Nov. 11 in front of the Roxas City Metropolitan Cathedral here.


Roxas City Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (RC-FCCCII) President Leny Albert Apaitan received the key from Chusuey after the blessing rites that was also graced and witnessed by local officials, the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) officials, fire volunteer groups, mediamen and businessmen, among others.


“The unit will be an additional blessing to our family,” said Federation of Roxas City Fire and Rescue Volunteers, Inc. (FEROCITY) fire chief Ronald So.

 

Organized in 2013 as the volunteer arm of the RC-FCCCII, FEROCITY has also owned a supertanker truck before the 4,000-liter donation.


Said fire trucks will complement the three units of BFP Roxas City headquarters and another fire truck stationed at Brgy. Loctugan fire sub-station.


Also, the Capiz Citizens Action Group (CACAG) Fire Volunteer Brigade based in McKinley Street here boasts of three firefighting trucks that include a 12,000-liter supertanker.


The Roxas City government also has a water tanker that can augment the operation of fire trucks during fire and similar other disasters. (Alex Lumaque)
