BFP takes delivery of new Hino fire trucks

(From L-R) Mr. Vicente T. Mills, Jr. – Chairman Hino Motors Philippines Corp.; Mr. Mitsuharu Tabata – President, Hino Motors Philippines Corp.; Chief Supt. Roel Jeremy Diaz – Bids & Awards Committee Chairman, Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP); Chief Supt. Jesus Fernandez – Chief Director, Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP); Ms. Marion Cura – Sales Manager, F. Cura Industries; Mr. Florence Cura – General Manager, F. Cura Industries; Mr. Jin Hong – Sales Manager, Hanseo Precision Industry Co., Ltd.

Hino Motors Philippines is once again the truck of choice, this time by the Bureau of Fire Protection as the government agency has recently taken delivery of a fleet of new fire trucks under its modernization program.

Under RA11589 or the BFP Modernization Act, the government agency tasked with protecting the nation’s people against fires  and calamities of the like, took delivery of an initial batch of 15 fire trucks that will be deployed to various Local Government Units. 

With a goal of providing state of the art equipment to help our nation’s firefighters do their job more effectively, the new fire trucks are designed to help them get to the emergency site faster and safer. This is backed up by Hino’s long years of experience in providing durable and reliable commercial vehicles for various applications. In this case, it is the FF8J chassis underpinning the trucks that run on a J08E direct injection with electronic control unit common rail diesel engine that produces 240bhp and 530lb-ft of torque. This essentially translates to a workhorse that can adequately pull a rig fitted with all the firefighting gear to help save lives. 

Moreover, Hino’s Total Support philosophy aims to provide products that have maximum uptime while keeping running costs down. This is vital to agencies like the BFP that need a reliable and durable workhorse as numerous lives depend on this.

With this, we hope to see better service from the BFP with its new fleet of Hino fire trucks.
