Newly installed Bacolod Fire Marshal Chief/Insp. Stephen Jardeleza vows to upgrade their service delivery to the people of Bacolod City and also affirm their commitment to the Bureau of Fire Protection as an agency in all its programs and activities.

Jardeleza, former fire marshal of the Province of Guimaras, took over from Chief Insp. Rodel Legaspi who was promoted to fire marshal of Negros Occidental. The turnover ceremony was held last March 27 at the BFP Regional Office in Iloilo.

The newly-installed fire marshal said they plan to introduce more innovations to enhance their campaign on fire safety prevention, as well as conduct an inventory of the skills of BFP personnel to determine how experienced they are, and if they adhere to the standards of the modern dynamics of firefighting, and also ensure that their equipment are well maintained.

Jardeleza said that before he became fire marshal of Guimaras, he was assigned as fire marshal of Malay, Aklan in Boracay; San Enrique in Sara, Iloilo; and Roxas City.

“With my experience I can give the best service to the people of Bacolod,” he said, adding that he has been in the service for 24 years with assignments the national headquarters to the different areas in Western Visayas.

He plans to meet with the mayor and others heads of agencies who are their partners, and will continue to implement programs of the BFP like Fire Prevention Month, and Oplan Ligtas Pamamayan, Jardeleza said.

They will also conduct community fire protection planning in partnership with the barangays, and ensure that business establishments are compliant with the fire Code of the Philippines, he added.*
