Under the theme “Modernong Bumbero, Kaakibat Tungo sa Ligtas at Maunlad na Pamayanan,” the monthlong celebration was spearheaded by BFP regional director CSupt. Roberto Genave, who aligned the series of activities conducted by the institution to actively embrace its duty and mandate to protect Central Visayas from both human and natural disasters. The anniversary celebration included activities such as tree-planting, coastal cleanup, blood letting and a roadshow for children. Genave expressed his gratitude to the men and women who have rendered their service at BFP-7 for the past 32 years. He also thanked the public officials and private citizens who shared their time, effort and resources to help the institution realize its vision for the people of Central Visayas. “We are very grateful that we were given the most opportune role by the Lord to serve our fellowmen by being their defender, protector and ally,” he said. “The challenge for us in the next decades is to continue empowering our constituents that they have the capacity and capability to also be of service to their fellowmen and their communities.”
