CLARK FREEPORT ZONE, Pampanga (PIA) -- Clark Development Corporation (CDC) opened its fire station building.
During the inauguration, CDC Presdient Manuel Gaerlan said the facility aims to give a safe and stable environment for investors to do business and operate.
“Facilities like this one inside the Freeport and the Special Economic Zone are vital because they add not only value but also boost confidence and sense of protection for our locators and investors. As we [CDC] conduct our business with a heart, we should give the necessary care and protection to them not only in our business processes but also in terms of services, particularly public safety services,” he said.
For his part, CDC Chairman Atty. Edgardo Pamintuan lauded the infrastructure project, citing that the new fire station will help in providing effective and efficient protection services to all Clark stakeholders.
With this facility, we can prevent business disruption and distractions through modern facilities, technology, and equipment. It is really good to invest here in Clark because of the sense of safety and security that this facility signifies,” he said.
The facility, worth P10 million, features seven fire truck bays, staff office, toilet and pantry, storage room, open area, staging area, panic area, and slide pole at the ground floor. Its second floor houses a quarters area with 28 bedding capacity and comfort rooms for both male and female.
Apart from this, CDC officials also led the blessing ceremony for their fire trucks.
CDC Public Safety Department said the firetruck procured in 2017 has a water capacity of 2,005 gallons, while the other truck, a RosenBauer fire vehicle, has a capacity of 1,500 gallons. (CLJD/MJSC/PIA-3)
