The city government has earmarked P28 million for Zamboanga City Fire District (ZCFD) of the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) for the purchase of four units of fire trucks.

ZCFD fire marshall Supt. Dominador Zabala, Jr. said the acquisition of four fire trucks would increase their present fire fighting capability.

Under Zabala’s command are seven fire stations, which also maintain seven sub-stations covering 90 mainland barangays.

Zabala said the four new units will be distributed to fire stations that needed most new firefight equipment.

Among the fire stations that need new fire trucks are those in the far-flung Barangay Labuan, west of this city, and Barangays Sangali and Curuan, both east of this city.

Zabala is thankful for the support the ZCFD is receiving from the city government. — TPG
