GORDON DEPLOYS 15-MAN RED CROSS TEAM TO BASECO COMPOUND FIRE

No less than the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) Chairman and CEO, Senator Dick Gordon, ordered the quick deployment of the PRC fire team which swiftly responded to a fire breaking out within the Baseco Compound at the Port Area District in the City of Manila. The fire started at around 8:40 AM, this Friday morning, March 4, 2022.

“Kaagad natin dineploy ang dalawang firetrucks natin at isang ambulansiya upang makatulong sa pagsugpo ng sunog diyan sa Baseco Compound. I also instructed the PRC Manila Chapter to send our Hot Meals on Wheels food truck, upang agad na may makain ang ating mga kababayan diyan na apektado ng sunog,” said PRC Chairman Gordon.

PRC sent two fire trucks along with a 15-man Emergency Response Unit team as well as an ambulance crew. The ambulance team treated and transported an injured patient to nearby Gat Andress Bonifacio Memorial Medical Center. As of 9:45 AM, the fire was already under control.

Additionally, PRC Manila Chapter will be deploying one of the Red Cross’ food trucks dubbed as Hot Meals On Wheels to feed 100 affected individuals.

“March is Fire Prevention Month, kaya naman pinapaalalahanan natin ang ating mga kababayan na laging mag-ingat upang makaiwas sa sunog. Ang Philippine Red Cross ay laging handang rumesponde at umalalay sa anumang sakuna, lalong lalo na sa pagsugpo ng apoy,” added Gordon.
