March is Fire Prevention Month based on Proclamation No. 115-A, s. 1966. Fire prevention for March is actually part of the whole proclamation. The public or official announcement is about ABOLISHING SAFETY AND ACCIDENT PREVENTION WEEK AND DECLARING THE YEAR NINETEEN HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SEVEN AND EVERY YEAR THEREAFTER AS SAFETY AND PREVENTION YEAR. The Proclamation states that there is indisputable evidence of a considerable rise in accident occurrence every year not only in industrial, commercial and agricultural enterprises, but especially on the highways, in schools and even in our homes, most of which are unrecorded. So basically it contains safety and prevention awareness for the whole year. This was signed and declared by former president FERDINAND E. MARCOS on the 17th day of November, Nineteen Hundred and Sixty-Six or November 17, 1966. He believed that constant and continues propagation of safety consciousness among our people every day of the year will provide a positive preventive approach to a problem that can be solved by more caution, vigilance, sobriety, exercise of common sense and respect for the law.
