DENR Calabarzon takes another step to go ‘paperless’

         Select 'document trackers' of the DENR Region 4A CALABARZON Regional Office gathered in conference on Tuesday, July 12, 2016, to concretize moves to implement ways to effectively manage and systematically track important documents and using the e-Document Action Tracking System (e-DATS). Dennis Segovia Jr., regional Information Systems Analyst from the Planning and Management division discussed the process and salient points of the System.

         The e-DATS is an initiative of the DENR Central Office to facilitate the monitoring of documents in the whole department, including the regional, provincial and community environment offices.

           Segovia said, "Eventually, all document actions will be done through the e-DATS, achieving the department’s aim to go paperless. The newly-introduced system will also address the problems in document action delays and archiving that has been plaguing the offices for a long time."

            He stressed on the importance of the e-DATS: how to access it, how does one receive and send documents, and how does it make tracking documents more efficient.

            He said that as of now those attending are those in-charge of keeping the documents in their respective divisions and are the ones provided with e-DATS accounts. As part of the DENR's efforts to implement effective document management and in the spirit of transparency in dealing with the public, Segovia concluded, “Soon, all employees will have an e-DATs account, as we (DENR employees) are all action officers.” (With Vera Merano, Administrative Assistant, RPAO)

DENR Calabarzon, on alert for Ompong

       

          Power outage and water disruption. These are the expected consequences of the onslaught of Typhoon Ompong, estimated to make a landfall on the northern portion of the Philippine islands in less than 24 hours.

          In preparation, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) CALABARZON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon) is calling for volunteers to help.

          DENR Calabarzon Assistant Director for Technical Services, Arturo E. Fadriquela said the plan is to prepare their field personnel for two packaged services. The first package is to provide chainsaws with skilled operators and porters, and the second one is to deliver fully-charged generator sets.

          Fadriquela, the designated captain for the relief and rescue operations, said they will be in close coordination with the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (RDRRMC) should their services be needed.

         “Kapag ang hiningi sa atin ay tumulong sa clearing ng area, ang gagawin lang pagpasok sa kalsada, may nakaharang (na puno) itabi, putol, itabi… Wala nang retrieval ‘yon, saka na ‘yon kasi mabilisan ‘yon e. Kailangan kasi ma-clear ‘yung daan para makapasok ang serbisyo, pagkain, tubig,” Fadriquela said.

          He also said they are looking into the possibility of providing go bags to the affected communities, and warm bodies to be of aid in other services. “Kung hindi naman apektado, maging available din ang mga tao natin kung saka-sakaling i-deploy sa mga repacking,” the assistant regional director said.

          “We would like to have an inventory of standby generators and water tanks that people can lend and we can mobilize in areas of greatest need so we are calling on people to let us know if they have one we can borrow” added DENR Calabarzon Director, Atty. Maria Paz G. Luna.

          With regard to the potential garbage accumulation, Luna said “we aim to have as close to a zero waste operation as possible because trash mounds in disaster areas turn into breeding places of pests and germs”.

          The relief and rescue operations are part of the Tayo ang Kalikasan program of the department.

          Willing volunteers may contact the DENR regional office through hotline numbers 09202068610 and 09553912684, email address This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , or Facebook page @denr4aofficial.

          The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Service Administration (PAG-ASA) has raised public storm warning signal no. 1 for the entire region.
