DENR receives P1.2 M worth firefighting equipment to boost reforestation in N.Ecija

PALAYAN CITY, Nueva Ecija--- The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) here received recently some P1.2 million worth of firefighting equipment from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) to further boost the reforestation and protection of the 44,000-hectare Pantabangan-Carranglan watershed in Nueva Ecija under the Forestland Management Project (FMP), environment official said. 

Alfredo Collado, provincial chief of DENR in Nueva Ecija said the firefighting tools would be helpful to sustain their efforts in the protection of the plantations that have already been established under FMP inside the Pantabangan-Carranglan watershed.

“Grassfire is one of the factors that destroy our forest plantations. If we cannot protect our reforestation areas from this destructive agent, our efforts would be nothing,” he explained.

He said the delivery of firefighting equipment is very timely for their preparation in the coming summer months this March and April and will augment their present capabilities in fire suppression and control, he said.
