Kidapawan BFP asks establishments to comply with fire safety requirements


The city government of Kidapawan has reminded the owners of establishments to comply with the necessary requirements in securing the Fire Safety Inspection Certificates (FSIC).

City Fire Marshal Fire Chief Inspector Leilani Bangelis issued the reminder as the city joins the entire country in the observance of the Fire Prevention Month.

Bangelis assured that the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) will immediately process and issue the FSIC once the requirements are complied with and the establishment is inspected by the fire personnel.

FSIC is a proof that the establishment is safe to be occupied as provided in Republic Act No. 9514 or the Revised Fire Code of the Philippines.

Issuance of the FSIC is also a requirement for business renewals and applications that the city government extended until March 31, 2020 in the aftermath of the October 2019 earthquakes.

It will take 2-3 days for an FSIC to be issued for business establishments as long as the necessary requirements are completed and submitted by the business owners, the City BFP chief added. #
