Poro Point Management Corporation’s (PPMC) Crash, Fire & Rescue (CFR), Environmental Management and Health Services (EMHS) and Zone Security and Public Safety (ZSPS) Teams, together with the San Fernando Airport Police Station (SFAPS) and its Special Operations Unit (SOU) participated in a basic firefighting refresher course supervised by the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) Region 1.
The activity, held on May 17, 2023, at the San Fernando Airport, is part of the efforts of the PPMC to capacitate its personnel in safety and health skills. A total of 35 participants attended the said activity.
The Poro Point Freeport Zone used to house the former Wallace Air Station. The enactment of Republic Act 7227 (Bases Conversion and Development Act) on March 19, 1992 and Proclamation No. 216 on July 27, 1993 effectively transferred the stewardship of the Freeport to the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) to facilitate its conversion into a productive economic growth center.
