“Hindi natin alam kung anong klaseng tawag ng tungkulin ang ating gagampanan kapag tayo ay nasa labas. Kung kaya’t naaayon lamang na may alam tayo hindi lang sa pagresponde sa kriminal, paglapat ng paunang lunas kundi pa din sa pagsugpo ng sunog upang hindi na ito lumaki pa. Ilan lamang ito sa mga bagay na ating ginagawa upang makapaglingkod ng TAMA; TApat, may tapang at MAlasakit sa mamamayan.” PMGEN DANAO said.###
