From extinguishing wild fires to the acute health effects of firefighting, broadcast journalist Abner Mercado will tackle the heroic account of firemen who fight to save lives and properties despite lack of sufficient firefighting equipment tomorrow (April 12) in “Krusada.”
Witness the story of Senior Fire Officer 2 Renato Gazaga and his father Pablo Gazaga who have been fighting fires for two decades in Fairview, Quezon City. Lack of proper firefighting gear not only affects their performance in the job but also their health and family life as well.
“Firefighters serve as soldiers who are ready to put out raging fires that ruin lives and properties. But how can they do their job when they don’t have sufficient weapons? They are like soldiers who go to battle bearing guns without bullets,” he said.
In his report, Abner will show how, despite shortage of fire trucks and breathing apparatus, Filipino firefighters continue to serve the public with utmost integrity and dedication.
