This is to strengthen the efforts on Fire Prevention Modernization Program. President Duterte said during the ceremony, “I hope that with these fire trucks, the BFP will be more capable and effective in ensuring the safety of our community and industry.  I am confident that with the BFP’s leadership, we can further boost people’s confidence in their government and create an environment where our people can live and work in peace.”

This will be distributed to different regions nationwide as 176 units more will be coming their way. According to SSUPT Jerry Candido, BFP Director for Logistics, the brand-new units is a bureau’s step up on their games. “Basically, there are three main components we look for in a fire truck; its platform - engine & chassis, water tank, and fire pump. When we saw that the engine & chassis brand of this truck was Isuzu, our first comment was “Wow, that’s a quality truck!”

The 1st batch of the delivery actually includes 54 units of Isuzu FVR34 trucks with a body and equipment built by Hanseo that has the capacity to carry 1,000 gallons perfect for heavy operations. In line with this, IPC gave assurance that the BFP will have full support wherever the trucks may be deployed in the country. Present in 43 locations nationwide, IPC offers excellent after sales support and guaranteed parts availability.
