Three personnel of the Bureau of Fire Protection in Bohol have tested positive for illegal drug use, said BFP Central Visayas director Sr. Supt. Samuel Tadeo.
Tadeo told media in Cebu that a total of four BFP-7 personnel, three from Bohol and one from Cebu, tested positive following a random drug-testing.
For her part, FO2 Diana Dano of the BFP Bohol intelligence and investigation section said that no memo has been relayed to their office yet confirming the alleged drug use of three of its employees.
According to Dano, the official record of the drug-testing results is still with the BFP-7.
The drug testing was conducted on September 5 with the BFP 7 leading the initiative’s implementation across fire stations in the province, she said.
Meanwhile, Tagbilaran City fire marshal Chief Insp. Randy Mendaros assured that none of the city’s firefighters and BFP employees tested positive for drug use after the said random testing.
Mendaros also noted that all fire station chiefs in Bohol tested negative for drug use even prior to the testing of the rest of the BFP 7’s personnel. (Allen Doydora)
