HOW WE WORK

When the system receives a report, it will be verified by an operator. If verified, the information will be dispatched instantly to all fire stations and firefighters.

How it all started?

Mr. Gerry Chua, Founder and President of TXTFIRE PHILIPPINES FOUNDATION, INC., a.k.a. Mr. Ube was very fond of texting. He loves to forward text jokes and news to his friends and relatives. Since Mr. Chua is a fireman himself, he decided to might as well text to his friends where the fire is. Until later, a friend called him and asked him not to send these messages as they were just disturbing him. Mr. Chua being a busy man forgot to erase his name on the group text. Until one day his friend approached him, and said thank you. Thank you because if not for the text of Mr. Chua, he would not know that there was a fire at back of his house. His friend at that time was in the market and his kids were still at home sleeping.

So then did Mr. Chua decide to make this bigger, better, and faster!

What’s more?

We conduct relief operations, outreach programs, fire safety drills and seminars, medical
missions, distribution of posters and flyers on fire safety tips, and more.
