The City of Tacurong received a brand new Rosenbauer fire truck (TLF 4000 model) from the DILG and Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) as part of the BFP Capability Building Program of the government.

City Fire Marshal SINSP JULIO B GABUT presented the Rosenbauer to City Mayor Lina O. Montilla during the flag raising ceremony at the Tacurong City Hall on 9 July 2018.

Rosenbauer is considered as one of the finest and top-of-the-line brands of fire trucks in the world. In particular, the Rosenbauer TLF 4000 has a water cannon that can reach at least 62 meters distance horizontally and 24 meters vertically. It has a water pump discharge capacity of 2,400 liters per minute with higher engine power that can fully navigate even highly inclined areas with its 240-horsepower engine. These make it three (3) times better than the existing fire trucks of Tacurong City Fire Station (TCFS).

A demonstration was conducted thereafter by the TCFS fire fighters to showcase the Rosenbauer’s capabilities.

Other recipients in Region XII are Koronadal City, General Santos City, and Isulan. A turn-over ceremony was officially held in Koronadal City led by CSUPT LOUIE S PURACAN, Regional Director BFP Region XII, and attended by Montilla, City Mayor Peter Miguel of Koronadal, Dr. Agripino Dacera, City DRRMO of General Santos, and Mr. Andrew Well Pallasigue, Municipal Administrator of Isulan.(YMR, LGUTac-Info)
