Each trainee will undergo an aptitude test and a comprehensive exam to measure the level of understanding and learning gained from the orientation program. Arbutante also emphasized that in line with the provision of Executive Order No. 56 signed by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, the Bureau of Fire and Protection (BFP) is the lead agency in strengthening the conduct of various disaster resilient training.

The ceremony was graced by Governor Dorothy Montejo-Gonzaga together with CINSP Donald R. Concepcion, Acting Provincial Fire Director, PLTCOL Jason L. Baria, Chief of Police Nabunturan Office, Municipal Fire Marshals, and Tactical Officers.

Governor Gonzaga congratulates and motivates the trainees for instilling in their hearts and minds the duties and responsibilities of firefighters embodied in the vision, mission, and goals of BFP.
