In celebration of the Fire Protection Awareness Month, the Regional Office of the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) formally opened the annual Firelympics in Surigao del Norte Provincial Gymnasium on Tuesday.

In a phone-patch interview with SFO2 Bomen Lofranco, Chief, Public Information Service of Butuan City Fire Station, he said 22 delegate-athletes of Butuan City Fire Station proceeded to Surigao City to compete in different fields of sports discipline such as Basketball-Men, Volleyball-Women, Dart and other indoor games.

Lofranco said the last Firelympics was held long ago with Butuan City Fire Station winning the overall championship plum.

With Butuan City declared as Overall Champion in the recent Palarong Pampook 2011 which was also held in Surigao City last week, BFP-Butuan is also hoping that they can bring home the bacon for the city, and defend the title they won during the previous years.
