Dead Tacloban firefighters honored as heroes
by Andrew Jonathan Bagaoisan, ABS-CBN News
Posted at 12/04/2013 8:42 PM | Updated as of 12/04/2013 8:49 PM

TACLOBAN CITY - Sirens wailed through downtown Tacloban as firefighters paid tribute to comrades who died during the onslaught of super typhoon Yolanda.

At a motorcade that waded through the city's main streets under the heat of day, members of the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) stood guard over a casket draped with a flag and perched atop a fire truck.

It represented not only one, but 5 fire service officers washed away by floodwaters while they rescued relatives and compatriots.

The BFP is still busy with relief, recovery, and restoration efforts, but the work was temporarily halted Wednesday morning to honor SFO4 Ricardo Raga, SFO3 Marius Andre Sison, FO2 Rolando Cinco, FO1 Felix Miranda, and FO1 Melquiades Baguio.

All fire servicemen were on red alert during the storm. Their bodies were found days later and buried soon after.

"They responded to the call of duty, I respect them so much," said Senior Supt. Pablito Cordeta, the BFP director for Region VIII. "They're really heroes."

For establishments it is mandatory for them to get a fire permit and business permit. A fire extinguisher is needed for a certain number of sqm. Inspections are done annually which becomes a lucrative business for some enterprising fire inspectors. Be sure to know warranties and expiry of your FEX and don't let "inspectors" tamper with it.
