Bureau of Fire Protection chief Supt. Carlito Romero has directed his station commanders to clean up their mess and maintain good ambiance when dealing with the public. The BFP’s new officer-in-charge said in his memorandum that eye sores and fire hazards in their offices should be removed. Romero assumed office on Jan 14, replacing Chief Supt. Ruben Bearis who had a short three-month stint. Romero said the BFP should show the public that firemen must live by example by removing all possible fire hazards as they educate the public on importance of cleanliness. According to him, it is very difficult to ask the public to free their homes and offices from fire hazards if they see BFP offices not doing what firemen preach.
