LPG company South Pacific Inc. sends fire trucks to help people in waterless areas

ARE YOU HAVING PROBLEMS with your water supply?

The water shortage that recently hit the eastern part of Metro Manila and some parts of Rizal stirred the spirit of “bayanihan” and corporate social responsibility among private entities.

One such company, LPG supplier South Pacific Inc. (SPI) immediately deployed several of its fire trucks to severely affected areas to alleviate the situation. SPI founder, LPGMA Representative Arnel Ty noted that thousands of people suffered because of the sudden albeit temporary loss of a vital human necessity such as water.

Ty says that it is during these instances that it becomes everyone’s responsibility to do his share to help out in any manner they can. Since their companies own several firetrucks because of their involvement as volunteer fire brigades in the metro, it was a reflex action to use these to give temporary relief to the waterless areas.

Firetrucks owned by SPI and sister company Republic Gas Company sent firetrucks to supply water to the following areas - Bgy. West Crame, Bgy. Pleasant View Subd., Bgy. One in San Juan City, Tandang Sora, Bgy. Sauyo in Quezon City, First West, Bgy. Sta. Lucia, La Consolacion Convent in San Juan City, Ortigas Center, Bgy. Orange, Bgy. Pinagbuhatan in Pasig City, Bgy. Kapitolyo in Pasig City and Barangka Drive in Mandaluyong City.

The residents of these places now want to thank them for their generosity.
