Pasig City's newest improvised vehicle has come. This is the unmanned firefighting machine which can pump 2,500 liters of water per minute and help firefighters do their job in safer environment.

The city recently acquired an Unmanned Firefighting Machine (UFM) – a remote-controlled machine that pumps a combination of high pressured air and water to fight fire. It’s the first of its kind in the Philippines.


ABOUT THE UFM (Unmanned Fire-fighting Machine)

Although the UFM may look small compared to a standard fire truck, it is one of Pasig City’s strongest firefighting weapons. It runs on continuous track wheels and can pump 2,500 liters of water a minute through a hose that connects the machine to a tanker truck.

With one man maneuvering the machine using a remote control, the UFM can shoot water to suppress fires in confined spaces. If water is unavailable, it can spew air to clear smoke and toxic gasses, and allow rescue teams to enter the scene.

In a turnover ceremony on April 24, Pasig City Mayor Robert “Bobby” Eusebio said the city council acquired the P19-million UFM because there was a gap in the city’s ability to fight large factory or industrial fires. It also addresses the problem firefighters encounter when entering narrow streets or spaces.

“Tamang-tama na merong unmanned vehicle katulad ng ganito para kahit papaano sa mga maliliit na eskinita, madali namin maipapasok, maisusupo ang sunog,” said Eusebio. (It’s the right time for us to have an unmanned vehicle like this so that it’s easy to enter narrow streets and quench fires.

It is useful especially during factory, basement, and chemical fires. Since it’s unmanned, it can enter areas which may typically pose a high threat to humans, such as areas which may have hazardous gasses or extreme heat.

“Isang malaking bagay kung may ganitong equipment para rin makatulong ng mas mabilis, at tas ligtas din sa firefighter habang nagpi-penetrate sa mga sunog,” Pasig City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Chief Ritchie Van Angeles said.

PASIG CITY'S AWARD WINNING RESPONDERS

Aside from the UFM, the Pasig DRRM Office also received other items and vehicles that can aid them in their emergency response missions such as an aerial ladder, a communications van, an amphibious vehicle with jetski, a fire truck with hydraulic platform, a 40-footer mobile kitchen attached to a tractor head with crane, and a mobile shower trailer.

The Pasig City government has invested in constructing and improving drainage lines along some streets in the city to reduce the impact of flooding during typhoons and strong rains.

WHERE TO NEXT?
