Zambales firefighters denied entry to Hanjin Fire

Zambales, firefighters in Subic town lamented Monday the shroud of secrecy surrounding a fire that occurred near the Hanjin shipyard at the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority Sunday.

Subic town fire chief Senior Fire Officer 2 Jose Borlagdatam said they rushed to the scene but were denied entry at the SBMA area where the Hanjin compound is located.

“Ang problema natin sa Hanjin pinilit natin kumuha ng information, wala tayong makuhang information gawa ng hindi tayo makapasok sa loob ng Hanjin. Yan ang problema natin ganoon din sa pulis [Our problem was that we could not get any information. We were denied entry to Hanjin.
Our town police had the same problem]," he said in an interview on dzBB radio.

He said police and firemen in Subic town are denied entry to the SBMA area, which he said has its own police force and firefighters.

Borlagdatam said the SBMA claims jurisdiction over the Hanjin area, while his unit has jurisdiction on the rest of the municipality of Subic.

“Nakapagresponde tayo kaya lang hindi tayo binigyan ng pagkakataong pumasok sa loob ng Hanjin. Nakaantabay lang tayo, hindi tayo maka-access sa loob (We sent a fire truck to the site but we were denied entry. So we had to wait because we were denied access inside)," he said. - GMANews.TV
