Shell supports fete for top Filipino firefighters
Mar 17, 2014
Gas technology leader and smarter mobility proponent Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation joined the Safety Organisation of the Philippines Inc. (SOPI) and the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) in recognizing The Outstanding Pilipino Firefighters (TOPF) for 2013, in an event held recently at the Midas Hotel in Pasay City.
“This is our way to acknowledge the excellent performance of these uniformed and civilian volunteers, assuring the safety of people, especially at times of emergency,” said Shell HSSE (Health, Safety, Security, and Environment) Country Manager Arsenio Isidro. “Despite the risks of their work, these men and women extend their best, professionally and with integrity, which is why we are glad to partner with SOPI and BFP in recognising the efforts of our fire fighters.”
For four years now, Shell has partnered with SOPI and BFP in recognizing the efforts of fire fighters selflessly risking their lives to protect public and private properties from fire and man-made disasters. Such support is part of Shell’s fundamental orientation toward safety not only in the workplace, but in the communities it operates in, along with other social investment advocacies such as road safety, driver education, sustainable mobility, developing new energy sources, and many others.
The outstanding fire fighters for 2013 are: S/Supt. Ma. Luisa C. Hadjula from Region 7; Supt. Jose S. Embang from NCR; Supt. Aladdin M. Guiomala from Region 12; Supt. Domingo V. Tambalo and Insp. Josephus F. Alburo from Region 7; C/Insp. Dennis A. Molo from NHQ; C/Insp. Roderick E. Ramirez from Region 2; C/Insp. Rodrigo N. Reyes from NCR; and SFO2 Glenn V. Paat from Region 1.
These recipients were chosen over a year-long selection process led by SOPI’s Fire Safety Division in conjunction with the National Technical Working Group. The awardees received a cash award sponsored by Pilipinas Shell Foundation Inc., accident insurance worth Php200,000, a plaque of recognition, and an automatic nomination for further recognition at the Civil Service Commission’s Lingkod Bayan Awards.
