BFP personnel of Sta. Maria Fire Station started the year with lots of noteworthy activities that build good rapport between the BFP and Barangays within their AOR. One of these activities is the conduct of Ugnayansa Barangay of the whole Barangays of Burgos, Ilocos Sur on March 11, 2013.
Participants of said Ugnayan sa Barangay are the Barangay officials, tanods and other municipal employees of this Municipality. They were taught with relevant information, and trained different skills regarding firefighting, fire prevention and rescue operation. With these noble activities at stake, whenever cases of emergencies and other eventualities occur, these well-skilled citizens can help the firefighters in protecting the lives and properties of the whole citizenry, as they are called force multipliers.
