Bureau of Fire Protection – Bangui Fire Station, Ilocos Norte actively supports and joined the activity of the Department of the Education for the OPlan Brigada Eskwela for the School Year 2013- 2014.
Brigada Eskwela is an annual schools’ cleanup and repair activity spearheaded by DepEd, with the cooperation of non-government organizations, parents, students, teachers, the business community and civic organizations
The activity is to Adopt-A-School Program (ASP) that invited local residents to help fix up the public schools in their area as a great way to generate community support via the time-honored, uniquely Filipino tradition of “BAYANIHAN.”
Its effort has evolved from a week long cleaning-up and beautification exercise to a festive coming together of students, teachers, school officials, parents, community members, local government officials, non-government organizations, church groups and the private sector.
