   DINALUPIHAN, Bataan – The first ever Provincial Fire Olympics was held at the Dinalupihan Sports complex, Dinalupihan, Bataan last Friday, June 20. Participated in by the City of Balanga and five municipalities, each chose a barangay to represent them namely; Barangay San Jose of Balanga City, Barangay Omboy/Salian of Abucay, Barangay Pita of Dinalupihan, Barangay Luz of Limay, Barangay Lati of Orion, and Barangay Tabing Ilog of Samal, Bataan. 

The activity is spearheaded by the Bureau of Fire Protection under the command of CINSP GENESIS F MORRONDOZ BFP Provincial Fire Marshal. It started with a parade of the participants with their muses, followed by the opening remarks delivered by SINSP REYNALDO N PINEDA BFP, Municipal Fire Marshal of Dinalupihan Fire Station, while INSP XIRIEL TAMAYO BFP, Municipal Fire Marshal of Mariveles led the Oath of sportsmanship. 

This sports event aimed to demonstrate the preparedness and firefighting capability of the local partners in the community both public and private, through various competitions, such as busted hose replacement, fire extinguisher and bucket relays, and straight hose connections.

This is consistent with the BFP’s endeavour to promote fire safety-consciousness in communities as exemplified in the year’s Fire Prevention Theme: “Sunog at Sakuna Paghandaan, Kalikasan ay Pangalagaan Nang Matamasa and Pag-Unlad ng Bayan.” It is their firm belief that with their modest efforts and camaraderie, they could further exemplify the essence of being a public servant.

Brgy. Pita of Dinalupihan emerged as the overall champion; Brgy. Luz of Limay came second and Brgy. San Jose of Balanga City came third. 

The following are the winners in the different events:
