The municipal government of La Castellana in Negros Occidental yesterday donated a 1,000 square-meter lot to the Bureau of Fire and Protection (BFP), to be used in the construction of its fire station building.

The deed of donation was signed yesterday by Mayor Alme Rhummyla Nicor-Mangilimutan and Senior Supt. Jerry Candido, BFP regional director for Western Visayas, in the presence of Councilor Anejo Nicor, chairman of the Tourism committee of the Sangguniang Bayan, and Chief Inspector Kim Molina Celisio, acting BFP provincial director.

The lot is located in an area of Brgy. Robles in, La Castellana, which is envisioned by Mangilimutan to be transformed into a “Social Activity Center,” similar to the Panaad Park in Bacolod City where the command and rescue centers of the Disaster Risk Reduction and Management facilities, including the evacuation center, are located.

Under the leadership of Mangilimutan, who used to be police non-commissioned officer before entering the politics, the municipal government also donated earlier 1,000 square meter lot in the same area, to be the site of the new La Castellana Police Station.

Mangilimutan said that the municipal government also plans to establish a satellite BFP sub-station in Brgy. Cabacungan, La Castellana, which is near to some of its hinterland barangays, where other satellite government offices, including a police precinct, has already been established.

Candido told Mangilimutan that he is ready to provide some personnel to be stationed in the proposed BFP sub-station.

If we have standby fire truck in those area, we can immediately respond to any fire incident as soon as possible, Mangilimutan said.

Candido said they need P9.5 million to construct a fire station building.

As a former police officer, Mangilimutan said her priority is the establishment of peace and order, with the help of various security agencies.

I believe that of there is a stable peace and order, the development and progress will be there, she stressed.*
