DAGUPAN CITY – The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Regional Office 1 has joined the Bureau of Fire Protection and the city government in conducting inspection and monitoring of apartments, dormitories and boarding houses here on June 16 coinciding with the opening of collegiate classes.

The inspection was in line with the CHED’s Oplan Balik-Iskwela 2015 program to ensure the safety and welfare of college students enrolled in various colleges and universities in the city who are living in boarding houses.

Dr. Geraldine Flor-Casipit, under the authority of CHED Region 1 Officer-In-Charge Cherrie Melanie C. Ancheta-Diego, joined the team composed of Bureau of Fire Protection acting city fire marshal Inspector Romie J. Tungpalan; One Stop Business Center manager Randolph Ubando and Monette De Venecia; and officials of the Health and Sanitation Division of the City Health Office; City Engineer’s Office; and the Philippine National Police in inspecting big dormitories on Arellano and Arellano-Bani.

“Inspecting and ensuring the safety and welfare of our students is part of our preparedness program. Soon we will conduct a regular disaster drill like fire and tsunami drills in all establishments and dormitories in our city to train and prepare everyone on how to act and respond to any form of disaster that befalls the city,” Mayor Belen T. Fernandez said.

Casipit was thankful to Fernandez for the support.

In her report, Casipit recommended that dormitories should regularly refill their fire extinguishers and check on their fire escapes to ensure that they are working and fit for use in case of emergency. (Joseph C. Bacani/CIO)
