To avert the occurrence of fire incidents nationwide, newly elected Senator Christopher “Bong” Go said there is now a need to put a stop to illegal electric connections.
He also believes fire incidents can be avoided if the public will strongly adhere to the implementation of fire safety measures.
Also, Go vowed to review and enhance guidelines in the issuance of permits by the Bureau of Fire Protection, and exercise oversight over its strict implementation.
The former presidential aide assured the public that he would prioritize in the Senate the strengthening of the country’s fire safety measures if needed.
“That is one of the legislations that we will push to prevent the occurence of fire incidents. Dami nasusunugan lalo na ‘yung mga
illegal connections,” said Go who has been moving around the country, bringing assistance to fire victms.
Despite being an elected senator, Go said he would not falter in his program to bring help to fire victims. He will continue visiting poor areas to determine the real situation on the ground and to find out their immediate needs that must be addressed.
“Sabi ko nga noon pa, I will not limit myself in being a legislator only. Ibig sabihin hindi ko po matitiis na nasa loob lang ako ng opisina sa Senado,” said Go.
“I prefer to mingle with ordinary people to know their real conditjon and needs,” said Go who also promised to reamain an “assistant” to the President whom he has been serving for more than two decades.
