Response to fire calls and emergencies in Labuan and the neighboring areas will be faster and more efficient, as the City Government is set to turn over to barangay Labuan a newly-constructed fire station on Monday, December 3.

Costing P2.064 million, the Labuan fire station will be the 15th fire station facility in Zamboanga and the 8th facility constructed under the administration of Mayor Celso Lobregat. It has an area of 131.54 square meters and was undertaken by Theta Construction Company.

With the fire station in Labuan, a swift response to fire calls in the barangay and the neighboring villages can be expected.

The other fire stations constructed under the Lobregat administration are the fire stations in Quiniput, Guiwan, Boalan, Talisayan, Sinunuc, Recodo and Upper Calarian. 
Another facility is in the offing in barangay Sangali.

Prior to Lobregat’s administration, 6 fire stations were existing and these are in Vitali, Manicahan, Tetuan, Ayala, Sta. Maria and the Central Fire Station, which was renovated and rehabilitated during Lobregat’s term.

Lobregat said the construction of fire stations is in line with his administration’s thrust in public safety.

The chief executive will lead city officials in unveiling and turning over the fire station along with two other structures—the newly-constructed barangay hall worth P4.2 million and center for the elderly worth P1.27 million, on Monday.

The 3 facilities are constructed in a city government-acquired lot, now named as the Labuan barangay complex. —Sheila Covarrubias
