                 DENR Region 4A CALABARZON delivers the second batch of 205 chairs to the San Juan National Senior High School in Lipahan, San Juan, Batangas. Mayor Rodolfo Manalo led local government officials in 'accepting' in behalf of the 260 Grade 11 students of the SJNSHS-Lipahan. (258 were already enrolled, two others were present for the first day of classes short of enrolled status pending completion of registration documents.) Laguna Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer Eleazar Alaira and Pagsanjan Community ENR Officer Emiliano Leviste represented DENR Calabarzon Regional Director Reynulfo Juan in the turn-over ceremonies.

                 Ms. Zenaida M. De Los Santos, Principal i, concurrently Principal of Don Leon Mercado Sr. Memorial National High School will take on the task as first Principal of the Senior High School.

                 She said they have a good turn out in terms of enrollment. She was expecting a total of 300 as that was the number of graduates in some four schools in the district who are expected to enrol.

 

 

                 Mayor Manalo expressed appreciation for the support of the DENR in the provision of the necessary chairs. He said Lipahan needs 300 school chairs. The DENR has so far delivered 408--first batch of 203 on June 2, 2016, 205 on June 13. The remainder of 92 will be picked up anytime from now for other senior highschools also in the municipality.

                 The mayor said his team with support of the council particularly, education committee head Councilor Adelaida Perez, and without waiting for the DepEd funds built two two-storey buildings and made eight groundfloor rooms ready for classes this June. He said the rooms will just need a good painting job.

                 School Principal de los Santos and San Juan Municipal LGU ENR Officer Noel Pasco toured Laguna Penro Alaira and Pagsanjan Cenro Leviste around the new SHS campus.
Alaira and Leviste watched as the senior high school students unload the chairs from the truck and brought these into their class rooms..

                 Alaira related that 500 desks were manufactured by the DENR Office in Laguna by using a special equipment to process some 15,000 board feet of 'confiscated lumber.' He said the donation is in line with DENR Secretary Ramon JP Paje's directive to utilize 'available confiscated timber cleared by or without court cases to be manufactured into school desks for priority distribution to recipient schools as identified by the Department of Education.

                He added that the wood were quality-processed, milled with the use of a Wood Mizer Mobile Sawmill which was installed at the DENR regional impounding area in Los Banos, Laguna.

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.
