National Fire Prevention Month 2019

It’s okay to be hot, but always keep safe!

The whole month of March is declared as “National Fire Prevention Month” by virtue of Presidential Proclamation No. 115-A, but why every March of every year?

Simply for the reasons that it is during this month that most number of fires occur according to PSA and March is one of the hottest month in the country according to PAG-ASA signaling the start of the dry season leading to the month of May.

Also, March was also declared as the Burn Prevention Month, as per Proclamation 360 of former president Corazon Aquino in 1989 to “disseminate knowledge in the field of burn prevention and to enhance education in all phases of burn care”.

For year’s theme, it is “Ligtas na Pilipinas Ating Kamtin, Bawat Pamilya ay Sanayin, Kalaaman sa Sunog ay Palawakin”, which calls for a safe community by raising awareness on fire prevention and preparing families in cases of fires because fire safety is everyone’s concern.
