Marlyn Macatangay during the 46th Fire Service Recognition Day at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino in Cebu City on Tuesday.
According to Macatangay, the BFP VII Program on Awards and Incentives for Service Excellence (PRAISE) committee assessed the overall performance of fire stations across the region prior to the awarding ceremonies.
The committee looked into the operational readiness, personnel discipline, administration and cleanliness of the stations, she said.
