Republic Act No. 6975 created the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) as an attached bureau to the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG). BFP envisions a modern fire service fully capable of ensuring a fire-safe nation by 2034. The BFP modernization program seeks to upgrade the government’s firefighting capability to include fire protection services for buildings and structures, including forests, airports, ships and vessels docked at wharves. This is aligned with Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) No. 11 of the global indicator framework in making cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable.
