The Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) National Headquarters announced the opening of its recruitment process to fill up the 1, 200 new Fire Officers 1 (FO1) vacancies nationwide.
The vacancies are open to all natural born Filipino citizens aged 21-30 years old and who are bachelor degree holders, board passers or Civil Service Commission (CSC) 2nd level eligible and should be physically and mentally fit.
Female applicants should be at least 5’2 in height and 5’4 for males.
The BFP also made emphasis that FO1 applicants who are holders of Professional Driver’s License with 2 and 3 restriction codes and National Certificate III in Driving issued by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) will be prioritized to address the long-standing lack in actual strength of firetruck drivers vis-à-vis the actual number of BFP-owned fire trucks.
The ideal number of firefighters according to the ratio being practiced by the BFP is 1 fireman for every 2,000 population, which means that the BFP needs about 50,000 personnel, since as of this date, the country has an estimated 100 million population. However, at present, the BFP is composed of 18,769 firefighters only, which has a shortfall of 31,231 personnel.
Yesterday, the Fire Bureau has also opened its recruitment and selection process for Non-Uniformed Personnel (NUP), mostly the vacancies are for the position of Engineers, Accountants, and Electrical Inspectors.
Earlier this week, the government was urged to fill up nearly 190,000 vacant positions in the entire bureaucracy, mostly in the frontline agencies such as the Department of Education, Philippine National Police, Bureau of Fire Protection, and the likes.###
