Mga tanggapan ng pamahalaan nagbigay babala sa publiko ukol sa paggamit ng mga paputok

Ni: Bennie A. Recebido

LUNGSOD NG SORSOGON, Disyembre 22 (PIA) – Nagkakaisa ang mga ahensya ng pamahalaan dito sa pag-abiso sa publiko ukol sa dapat gawing mga pag-iingat kaugnay ng paggamit ng mga paputok ngayong pasko at bagong taon.

Babala ng Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Sorsogon Provincial Office alinsunod na rin sa panawagan ni DENR Bicol Regional Executive Director Joselin Marcus Fragada at DENR Secretary Ramon Paje na dapat na mag-ingat ang publiko sa mga naiipong alikabok mula sa mga paputok na sumasabay sa hangin sapagkat napakamapanganib nito sa kalusugan.

Naglalaman din umano ang mga paputok ng sulfur, uling at iba pang mga materyal na nakabubuo ng greenhouse gases kapag nakahalo na ito sa hangin. Kung kaya’t dapat na maiwasang malanghap ito ng mga taong may asthma, bronchitis, laryngitis, pneumonia, rhinitis, at sinusitis.

Suportado din ng DENR Sorsogon Provincial Office ang panawagang dapat na magtalaga ang bawat lokal na pamahalaan ng isang lugar na pagdadausan ng pagpapaputok sa darating na pasko at bagong taon.

Mahigpit din ang kampanya ng Department of Health at ng Provincial Health Office kaugnay ng inilunsad na programang Aksyon: Paputok Injury Reduction (APIR) upang mabawasan ang bilang ng nabibiktima ng mga malalakas na paputok. Umaasa ang ahensya na maiiwasan at mababawasan ang pagkalagas ng buhay ng tao at bilang ng mga nasusugatan lalong-lalo na ang mga kabataan na may edad mula sampu pataas.

Sa tala ng DOH umabot ng 200 porsyento ang itinaas ng bilang ng mga naputukan noong taong 2010 kumapara noong taong 2009. Sa kampanyang APIR, higit pang palalakasin ng ahensya ang pagpapaalala sa mamamayan tungkol sa dapat at hindi dapat gawin sa pagsalubong ng pasko at bagong taon.

Maging ang Philippine National Police at Bureau of Fire Protection ay mahigpit din ang payo sa publiko na pag-ibayuhin ang pag-iingat laban sa mga paputok lalo’t kadalasang naitatala ang mga disgrasya at malalaking sunog sa panahong nagdiriwang ng bagong taon.

Paalala din ng BFP sa publiko na huwag gumamit ng mga malalakas at ipinagbabawal na paputok sa pagsalubong sa bagong taon upang maiwasan ang disgrasya at pagkawala ng buhay bagkus ay salubungin na lamang ito sa pamamagitan ng paggamit ng mga bagay na hindi mapaminsala.

Sa bayan ng Bulan, mahigpit na ipinag-utos ni Senior Fire Officer IV Tomas Dio sa kanyang mga tauhan na pag-ibayuhin ang inspeksyon sa mga tindahan ng paputok upang matiyak na walang magbebenta ng mga ipinagbabawal na paputok.

Dagdag pa ng opisyal na magsasagawa din ang Bulan Fire Station ng Fire Truck Visibility kung saan mag-iikot ang mga bumbero sa kabayanan at mga kalapit na barangay upang patuloy na mapaalalahanan ang publiko ukol sa kampanya sa iwas-paputok. (PIA Sorsogon)

Sorsogon general new military chief


President Aquino presides over the change of command between outgoing AFP chief Gen. Eduardo Oban Jr (Left) and incoming Lt. Gen. Jessie Dellosa (right) at Camp Aguinaldo on Monday. Ralph Joel

Lt. Gen.  Jessie D. Dellosa, a former aide-de-camp to the late former President Corazon Aquino, has been named chief of staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, replacing General Eduardo Oban Jr., who retires Tuesday at the age of 56, three Cabinet officials and two senior military officers disclosed Sunday.

It was Dellosa who implemented “Oplan Daybreak” that led to the rescue of American missionary Gracia Burnham and the killing of Abu Sayyaf leader Abu Sabaya nine years ago in Mindanao.

President Benigno Aquino III is expected to announce Monday the appointment of Dellosa, the head of the Northern Luzon (Nolcom) Command, to the top AFP post when the Commander in Chief addresses the troops during turnover rites at the AFP general headquarters at Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City.

Both Dellosa, who was born in Bacon, Sorsogon, and Oban, who is also from Sorsogon, belong to the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) Class 1979.

“It’s Dellosa. He’s been the choice for some time now as far as I know,” a key Cabinet official said, speaking on condition that he not be identified as he was not authorized to discuss the matter with the media.

The official said Dellosa was a great choice because of his reputation for “righting the wrongs” in the units he had led.

Another Cabinet official on Sunday night confirmed that Dellosa, described as mild-mannered and quiet, was the next AFP chief of staff.

“That’s what I hear unless there are changes at the last minute,” said the Cabinet official, who also did not want to be named for lack of authority to speak about the matter.

Still another Cabinet official, who is known to be close to the President, said Dellosa’s new appointment was “actually an open secret now within the AFP.”

Two military sources, both officers who serve under Dellosa’s command, said reports about the assumption of their commander to the top AFP post reached them on  Sunday. They, however, declined to say how they got the report or who circulated the information.

43rd chief

Dellosa becomes the 43rd chief of staff of the 130,000-strong military in a formal change of command ceremony in Camp Aguinaldo Monday.

Malacañang deferred announcing the incoming AFP chief of staff until the day itself of the turnover ceremony, keeping most of those in the AFP in suspense.

When Mr. Aquino appointed then General Ricardo David in July 2010 and Oban on March 7, Malacañang made the announcement before the formal turnover.

A decorated Army Scout Ranger officer, Dellosa is a recipient of numerous awards topped by a Distinguished Service Star, two Wounded Personnel Medals, two Gold Cross Medals, 39 Military Merit Medals, six Bronze Cross Medal, Long Service Medal, Marksmanship Badge Expert and Outstanding Achievement Medal.

Dellosa was appointed chief of Nolcom, which is based in Camp Servillano Aquino in Tarlac City, on July 22. As Nolcom chief, he commands all the military forces in northern and central areas of Luzon.

Before that, he was the commander of the Army’s 2nd Infantry Division based in Tanay, Rizal, that was responsible for the capture of top New People’s Army commander, Tirso Alcantara, on July 28, 2010.

He also served as deputy commander of the AFP Central Command based in Cebu City, among his many command posts.

Special commander

From 1988 to 1992, Dellosa was group commander of the special reaction unit of the Presidential Security Group that defended Malacañang from a series of deadly coups d’etat.

He later became junior aide-de-camp to then President Corazon Aquino. The democracy icon took him as personal escort on critical occasions, including her peace pact with the Cordillera People’s Liberation Army on Mt. Data in 1987.

Dellosa served as commanding officer of the 16th and 14th Scout Ranger (SR) Company, commandant of the SR Training School and commander of Task Group “Panther” from 1992 to 1997. He was commander of the 1st SR battalion in Basilan from 1997 to 1999.

As deputy task force commander and operations officer of Joint Task Force “Comet,” he implemented “Oplan Daybreak” that led to the rescue of Burnham from Abu Sayyaf bandits and the killing of Sabaya.

According to an officer, Dellosa sees “no victory” when the enemy suffers fatalities because in the aftermath, the killings “do more harm than good.”

The officer said Dellosa believed that using arms should be the last resort of any soldier. “He’s a soldier of peace,” the officer said.

From 2004 to 2007, Dellosa was the chief of staff of the 4th Infantry Division.

Then he served as deputy commander of the First Scout Ranger Regiment and concurrently group commander of special Task Group Sulu that was instrumental in the neutralization of Abu Sayyaf leader Abu Solaiman in January 2007.

Dellosa was named the PMA commandant of cadets in August 2007.

He underwent extensive military training as an infantry officer, intelligence officer, scuba diver, hostage rescuer, Scout Ranger and in airborne and antiterrorism courses.

First assignment

After graduation from the PMA, Dellosa was assigned in Jolo, Sulu, where he fought Moro rebels for three years and earned the coveted Outstanding Achievement Award for Military Operations awarded by the PMA Alumni Association in 1988.

Dellosa was born in Sorsogon on Jan. 20, 1957, but grew up in Lucena City.

Oban will step down a day ahead of his mandatory retirement on Dec. 13.

Only the fifth Air Force general to be the AFP chief of staff, Oban assumed office on March 7 at the height of the pabaon scandal that exposed multimillion peso slush fund enjoyed by former top military officials.

He vowed to stamp out corruption in the military and made fiscal and logistics reforms the cornerstone of his term. He also promised to hold himself and all officials accountable for the proper use of funds in light of allegation that funds were diverted for cash gifts or pabaon of retiring top officials.

His focus was on reforms, peace, modernization and morale and welfare.

    For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and sea creature, can be tamed and has been tamed by mankind, but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in the likeness of God.
