LOOK: SBMA and Subic locators hold Fire Olympics 2016

Fire brigade teams from different companies at the Taiwanese-run Subic Bay Industrial Gateway Park participate in this year's Fire Olympics organized by the SBMA Fire Department and the Subic Bay Development and Management Corporation (SBDMC) Friday morning.

The fire olympics is an annual event held every March of each year in observance of Fire Prevention Month to promote safety awareness and preparedness among companies and their workers in Subic Bay Freeport.

SBMA Deputy Fire Chief Raul Zapanta said that companies join this annual activity “because it is not only fun to the participants, but also hones their skills in firefighting and enhances rapport among the designated fire marshals from different companies.”

“It helps the volunteers build teamwork and cooperation with other fire volunteers, and also provides and an opportunity to put their skills to test,” he added.
