Hino Motors Philippines (HMP) turned over a fleet of brand-new fire trucks to the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) on June 3 in a ceremony held at the HMP headquarters in Calamba Laguna.

BFP officers led by Chief Supt. Roel Jeremy Diaz received the vehicles from HMP’s Chairman Mr. Vicente Mills, Jr. and President Mr. Mitsuharu Tabata. Also in the event are heads of F. Cura Industries and Hanseo Precision Industry, Co. Ltd. which partnered with Hino for the supply of fire truck body and special equipment.

The 15-unit delivery is the initial batch of a total 61 units procured from Hino and are set to be deployed to various LGUs nationwide.

Mounted on an FG8J chassis, these fire trucks are equipped with Hanseo Korean-built bodies and run on a Hino J08E Euro 4, direct injection, electronic control common rail diesel engine with an output of 240 HP and 716 Nm of torque.

“Hino Motors is proud to have been instrumental to the modernization of our BFP fleet of fire trucks. Unlike the usual vehicle requirements for business or commercial use, a fire truck demands the highest level of reliability. When lives are at stake, there is no room for compromise. We simply must get the job done. It is Hino’s utmost honor being BFP’s chosen partner for this task.”, said Mr. Tabata, HMP President.

Hino’s Total Support philosophy maximizing vehicle uptime while minimizing costs is a key advantage for emergency vehicles. Often deployed in the most challenging situations, these vehicles must be up and running all the time. Hino’s holistic approach to serving customers begins from supply of a durable chassis, to a perfectly fused body application, extending all the way to training, repair and maintenance.

Through RA 11589 or the BFP Modernization Act, the government sees to uplift the country’s rescue and firefighting capabilities through manpower recruitment, specialized trainings, and equipment upgrade.

Hino is committed to continue its active role in providing quality commercial vehicle products and aftersales services to Filipinos.
