Philippines: IRRI donates breathing apparatus to host community’s fire fighters
The Safety and Security Services of the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) donated four MSA Ultralite II Air Mask SCBA to the Bureau of Fire Protection of Los Banos on 19 January. The breathing apparatus will improve the capability of the bureau’s personnel to respond to fire break outs in IRRI’s host community as well as reduce the risks from significant hazards emergency responders face.
Municipal Fire Marshal Eric Tioco accepted the equipment from Dr. Bruce Tolentino, deputy director general for communication and partnerships at the Security Office.
