Metro Manila Police to donate P100 each for Taal volcano eruption victims

MANILA, Philippines — Members of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) will contribute Php100 each as their collective donation to the victims of the Taal Volcano eruption.

NCRPO acting director Police Brigadier General Debold Sinas said, the Php100 contribution of each police personnel will be deducted from the Php3,000 combat duty allowance that President Rodrigo Duterte issues to them monthly.

The senior police officers, meanwhile, signified that they will donate the whole Php3,000 to the victims.

The NCRPO expects to collect a donation of not lower than Php2.5-Million.

“That is the effort of NCRPO to help and assist the evacuees of the Taal Volcano eruption,” Sinas said.

On the other hand, rather than collecting Php100 each from the 500 NCR police whose families are also victims of the earthquakes brought about by Taal’s explosion, the NCRPO will instead grant them Php10,000 each as financial aid.

Meanwhile, more than 1,000 police from the Reactionary Standby Support Force (RSSF) stationed at Camp Crame will be deployed to Cavite and Batangas to give assistance to the victims and maintain security in the areas affected by the Taal explosion.

According to PLtGen. Guillermo Eleazar who heads the PNP Directorial Staff, the said police personnel will augment Police Calabarzon who had been deployed in the area for several days now.

“Yung mga pulis na nagbabantay doon since noong Linggong ito ay meron silang mga kamag anak at pamilya na naapektuhan din ng kalamidad dahil doon sila naka assign at doon din sila nakatira most of them. Kaya mas maganda na halinhan muna ang mga ito ng mga tropa natin galing sa NHQ, para sila ay makabalik sa kanilang mga bayan at pamilya at matulungan naman,” Eleazar said.

The said augmentation force who were issued face masks, goggles, and Php500 per day food allowance will stay in their assignments for three days and will be replaced on Monday by another batch of RSSF police. — (from the report of Lea Ylagan) /mbmf

NCRPO, walang ilalagay na checkpoint sa Metro Manila borders sa ilalim ng Alert Level 3

Robie de Guzman   •   January 4, 2022

MANILA, Philippines – Hindi pa rin maglalagay ng checkpoint ang National Capital Region Police Office papasok at palabas ng Metro Manila sa ilalim ng COVID-19 Alert Level 3.

Ngunit sinabi ni NCRPO Director PMGen. Vicente Danao Jr., magpapatupad sila ng mahigpit na pagbabantay sa pagsunod sa minimum public health standards, lalo na sa mga matataong lugar.

“Yung alert level 3 kasi wala pang checkpoint yan e, pero that is depend purely on the areas of concern, for example sa isang barangay may isang pook dyan na talagang subject for granular lockdown,” ani Danao.

“Itong alert level 3 ay okey pa naman, hindi pa ganoon kahigpit pero kapag umabot tayo ng 4 and 5, yung 4 and 5 kasi ang category nyan… ay yung ECQ noong una,” dagdag pa niya.

Sa halip, maghihigpit aniya ang NCRPO sa pagbabantay sa pagsunod sa minimum public health standard lalo na sa mga matataong lugar.

“Pati ba naman face mask ay kailangan pa ring pagsabihan ka? Dapat naman automatic kasama yan, may mga tao na matitigas ang ulo,” ani Danao.

Kaugnay nito, inatasan na ni Danao ang kanyang mga tauhan na makipagugnayan sa mga lokal na pamahalaan at mga mall managers para sa mahigpit na implementasyon ng health protocols.

Ang Metro Manila ay nasa ilalim ng COVID-19 Alert Level 3 hanggang Enero 15.  (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Lea Ylagan)

Robie de Guzman   •   December 29, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — Muling nagpaalala ang pulisya sa publiko na nananatiling bawal ang pagpapaputok kasabay ng pagpapalit ng taon.

Ayon sa National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO), mga pailaw o pyrotechnics display lamang ang papayagan lalo na sa Metro Manila.

“Paalala po sa lahat na may firecracker ban, na mahigpit pong ipinagbabawal ang lahat ng uri ng firecrackers sa buong NCR. Only pyrotechnics are allowed sa mga designated areas ng kani-kanyang LGU,” ang paalala ni NCRPO director Police Major General Vicente Danao Jr.

Una nang naglabas ang Philippine National Police (PNP) ng listahan ng mga ipinagbabawal na paputok gaya ng mga sumusunod:

  • Watusi
  • Piccolo
  • Poppop
  • Five star
  • Pla pla
  • Lolo thunder
  • Giant whistle bomb
  • Giant bawling
  • Atomic bomb
  • Atomic triangle
  • Large size Judas belt
  • Goodbye De Lima
  • Hello Columbia
  • Goodbye Napoles
  • Super Yolanda
  • Mother rockets
  • Kwiton
  • Super lolo
  • Goodbye bading
  • Goodbye Philippines
  • Bin laden
  • Coke in can
  • Pillbox
  • Boga
  • Kabasi

Babala ni Danao, huhulihin nila ang sinumang lalabag sa firecracker ban. Ang parusa ay depende aniya sa kung ano ang nakasaad sa ordinansa ng lokal na pamahalaang nakakasakop dito.

Aniya, magpapatrolya ang mga pulis sa bawat sulok ng Metro Manila upang masegurong walang lalabag sa panuntunang ito.

“Karamihan po ng mga mayors ay mahigpit pong ipinagbabawal ang pagbenta at paggamit ng firecrackers sa buong Kamaynilaan,” ani Danao. (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Lea Ylagan)

Taal Volcano records high-level of sulfur dioxide

Aileen Cerrudo   •   October 6, 2021

MANILA, Philippines—Taal Volcano has emitted a record-high level of sulfur dioxide (SO2) on Tuesday (October 5), according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs).

Based on the latest bulletin of Phivolcs, the volcano spewed out 25,456 tons of SO2 dominated by upwelling of hot volcanic fluids in its lake. The volcanic activity also generated plumes 1,500 meters tall that drifted northwest and northeast.

Alert Level 2 remains over Taal Volcano. Phivolcs reminds the public that at Alert Level 2, sudden steam- or gas-driven explosions, volcanic earthquakes, minor ashfall, and lethal accumulations or expulsions of volcanic gas can occur and threaten areas within and around the Taal Volcano Island (TVI).

Phivolcs has recommended that entry into Taal Volcano Island, Taal’s Permanent Danger Zone or PDZ must be strictly prohibited, especially the vicinities of the Main Crater and the Daang Kastila fissure, and occupancy and boating on Taal Lake. AAC
