Isuzu turns over 84 fire trucks in support of BFP upgrade plan
The ceremony was attended by officials and representatives of IPC, BFP officials headed by Director Jose Embang Jr, Secretary of the Department of Interior and Local Government Eduardo Año, from JROG Marketing, and guest of honor Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go. This is the second turnover that IPC conducted with BFP, the first held last February 11 where IPC delivered 74 firefighting and rescue vehicles. These represent bulk of fire trucks and rescue vehicles which the BFP requires for its project. The turnover comprised of 76 FVR 1,000-gallon fire trucks, 3 FVR rescue vehicles, and 5 CYZ52 2,500-gallon fire trucks with aerial ladders. The ever dependable and reliable vehicles form an integral part of the BFP’s modernization plans, which include providing durability, safety and comfort to hundreds of local government units that either have no vehicles or still use old trucks in their fire stations.
