Anti-terrorism training, sinimulan ng BFP

Jan 21, 2019

Nakatutok ang Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) upang gawing may-kakayahan ang mga personnel nito na tumulong sa oras ng anti-terrorism activities, pahayag ng isang opisyal kamakailan.
“We are not just traditional firefighters, we are also into anti-terrorism,” sabi ni Chief Supt. Jose Embang Jr., BFP deputy chief for operations, sa pagdaraos ng 45th Fire Service Recognition Day.
Sinabi niya na ang BFP ay magsisimulang magbigay ng capacity training on anti-terrorism para sa personnel nito.
“The BFP is one of the main recipients of training from the US (United States), European Union and we have projects as well as support equipment that would make our people knowledgeable on anti-terrorism,” ani Embang.
Ayon pa kay Embang ang BFP ay isang miyembro rin ng Anti-Terrorism Council at ng Philippine Center on Transnational Crime, kung saan kailangan ang pagpapaunlad ng mga istratehiya na makakatulong rumesponde sa “weapons of mass destruction threats”.
“We are looking into promoting and capacitating our BFP personnel to continue to broaden their expertise particularly in the field of anti-terrorism to ensure readiness,” aniya.
“It’s not just about guns and bullets nowadays but terrorists are now into biochemical which are chemicals being dispersed to civilians that may lead to death,” dagdag niya.
Sinabi niya na hindi gaya ng Armed Forces of the Philippines at Philippine National Police, ang mga personnel ng BFP ay inaasahan ding protektahan ang mga sibilyan mula sa mapanganib na materyales na ginagamit ng mga terorista gaya ng weapons of mass destruction.
“This will be a big challenge for us. The threat now is different, I will reiterate war is not about guns and bullets anymore. It is more on hazardous materials,”ani Embang.
Samantala ay sinabi ni Embang na ang Cordillera ay tatanggap ng mga fire trucks, personal protective equipment at rescue operations equipment na bahagi ng modernization program ng BFP.
Ayon pa sa kaniya ay naiiba ang mga fire truck sa mga na-issue sa ibang lugar ng bansa dahil sa klase ng lupain sa rehiyon.
