Furthermore, the second day of RYLA 2024 kicked off with the “Amazing Race” which tested the participants’ leadership, teamwork, and problem-solving skills.

Following the competition, the event continued with a series of talks and seminars focused on fire prevention where speakers from the Nueva Vizcaya Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), together with Rtn. Dhaise Leal-Cabautan shared valuable insights on the topic ‘Fire Extinguisher and LPG Management.
