BFP: Install sprinklers
or face closure, fines

The Bureau of Fire Protection yesterday warned businessmen in Bacolod City to install sprinkler systems in their establishments or they will be fined administratively or face closure.

Bacolod City Fire marshal, Chief Insp. Bartolome Beliran, said this is because the moratorium on the retroactive implementation of the sprinkler system ended on February 14 and has not been extended.

Businessmen in Bacolod had asked Interior and Local Government Secretary Manuel Roxas II for an additional six months to one year extension on the moratorium but it was not granted.moremoremore
