WHAT would you do if you were in a tragic situation? Most people would prioritize saving themselves and their loved ones, but Ryan Conson was different.Conson, a 38-year-old volunteer firefighter from Barangay Looc, Mandaue City, fearlessly ran through blazing houses and pavements to put out the fire in Sitio Under the Bridge, located underneath the Mactan-Mandaue Bridge (also known as the first bridge) on Tuesday, March 12, 2024.He was one of the first responders who rushed to the site of the fire, prioritizing the safety of the entire community over his own.Peaceful lunchAt the Looc Gym on Thursday, March 14, Conson spoke to the media about his experience during the Tuesday fire. On Tuesday afternoon, enjoying a quiet lunch at home, Conson suddenly noticed black smoke in a nearby area. Conson wasted no time in rushing to their fire truck at the Barangay Hall to investigate the black smoke.“Padung mi didtos nasunogan, dayon nag set up mi direcho. Mao nang dagan kos sulod, nitira ko dayon. Di na gyud namo matabang kay dako na kaayo ang kayo, unya kusog na kaayo ang hangin sad. Hapit pa gani among fire truck nasunog,” said Conson.(On the way to the area affected by the fire, we set up quickly. I ran inside the fire zone and trained my fire hose on the fire immediately. Unfortunately, the fire had already become too large and the wind was too strong. Our fire truck even almost caught fire.)Despite the danger, Conson and his team bravely attempted to extinguish the fire, but it quickly spiraled out of their control.Home lost As the situation worsened, Conson quickly ran back home and handed his family, especially his child, to his siblings for safety. Afterward, he returned to his firefighting duties.After a few minutes, Conson faced the worst experience a firefighter could ever go through. While he was busy saving other houses from the flames, he lost his house.Conson narrated the heartbreaking moment when he had to battle the fire to prevent it from engulfing his home of 20 years.But his composure never faltered in fighting the fire. This time, he was not only saving his community but also neighboring areas from losing their homes with the fire getting more aggressive, just like he was. More than 500 families were eventually displaced by the fire after it burned 370 houses.Rise of a heroConson has a day job working as a staff member at a motorboat port near his residence in addition to his job as a volunteer firefighter. He said the fire incident that occurred in Sitio Paradise, also in Barangay Looc, on Nov. 22, 2022, which was close to his neighborhood, inspired him to join the firefighting brigade in his barangay.The Paradise fire destroyed about 600 homes, displacing 2,737 individuals, making it one of the largest fire incidents in Cebu in 2022.“I volunteered because I really wanted to help people,” said Conson. He then trained in firefighting techniques at the Bureau of Fire Protection Mandaue Office. Conson works as a volunteer firefighter and receives an honorarium of P3,500 a month. He is on call for two shifts, day or night, and promptly responds to any fire incident, even those outside his barangay when the help of their fire brigade is required.For him, his small salary does not matter as he finds happiness in saving people in fire incidents.His most memorable assignment was the fire last Tuesday. Conson is now one of the 515 families affected by the fire who have found temporary refuge at the Looc Gymnasium. The Mandaue City Government is currently hosting evacuees at the gymnasium and nearby Cesar Cabahug Elementary School.Sadly, Conson and his family were unable to save any of their belongings and only escaped the fire with their lives.The first-degree burns on his left arm, which he did not notice until the fire was successfully extinguished, was the only souvenir of his heroic deed and Sitio Under the Bridge’s tragic fate.While waiting for help from the government and other individuals, Conson’s patriotic heart remains, as he chooses to still be a volunteer firefighter despite his experience.“This is a new chapter of my life, but I will continue to help other people. I have been a volunteer firefighter for a year now,” he said in Cebuano.

Chairman Victorino Manalo, in a letter addressed to the Department of Transportation (DOTr) dated Monday, March 25, 2024, requested Transportation Undersecretary Anneli Lontoc to submit two documents for the NCCA’s assessment and approval. The letter was posted on the official social media page of the Cebu Provincial Government on Wednesday, March 27. In the letter, Manalo asked Lontoc to submit an Archeological Impact Assessment (AIA) and development plans for the project to ensure that the CBRT complies with the National Cultural Heritage Act of 2009, or Republic Act 10066, and the General Appropriations Act (GAA). The AIA is required by Section 30(d) of RA 10066 and the Environmental Management Bureau of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources Memorandum Circular 005, series of 2014. The project’s development plan includes mitigation activities to protect the sight line with regard to built heritage, as required under Section 37 of the general provisions of the GAA. “In the meantime, we enjoin the DOTr not to conduct any work or changes in the area, especially excavation works, until we approve your AlA and development plans,” Manalo said. The Provincial Government met with NCCA officials recently to formally express concerns over the potential impact of the CBRT on the visual sight lines and buffer zones of the Cebu Capitol building. Meanwhile, CBRT implementers have started complying with the NCCA requirements. CBRT project manager Norvin Imbong, in a text message to SunStar Cebu on Wednesday, said the DOTr has coordinated with the University of San Carlos (USC) to help formulate the AIA. However, they will find out only on Monday, April 1, if USC can assist them, he said. Joint meetingImbong said their team will also have a joint meeting with the NCCA and the Philippine Historical Commission on Tuesday, April 2, at the Metropolitan Theater in Manila to discuss the matter. He said he will know by then if there are other requirements they need to comply with.Rama’s clarificationIn a statement on Wednesday, Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama reaffirmed his administration’s commitment to preserving heritage sites, while emphasizing the positive impact of the CBRT project.Rama said he had to say this so “neighbors, especially the politicians, will fully understand.”The mayor said he already raised the Capitol’s concern in a meeting with DOTr officials in Manila and the financing agencies, World Bank and French Development Agency. He also clarified that filing the complaint against Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia before the Office of the President had nothing to do with her stance to protect the Capitol building and its buffer zone. It was because of her “meddling” in suspending CBRT construction on Capitol-owned lots, he said.“We agree that we must protect the Capitol. There is no dispute there. The issue is the governor’s meddling, ordering the suspension of the CBRT. She has no right to do so. This is the reason why we have brought the issue to President (Ferdinand) Marcos (Jr.),” Rama said. Rama said the government is only striving to provide the public with “spacious, comfortable and safe transportation” through the BRT.Last February, the governor issued a cease and desist order (CDO) to the contractor of the first package of the CBRT project and directed it to cease civil works on a bus station with a leaf-like structure in front of the Capitol building along Osmeña Blvd. Rama responded by filing a complaint against Garcia before the Office of the President over her “meddling” in the CBRT project. Rama asked the President to “discipline and suspend Governor Garcia.”DelaysLast Monday, March 25, Imbong said they continued to work on other parts of the CBRT despite the governor’s CDO, which applies only to civil works on Capitol property. However, he said the CDO would probably delay the project anew, adding that the first package may not be operational in July as committed earlier. The CBRT project has been marred by several delays since its targeted implementation in 2016. It was only on Feb. 24, 2023 that President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. finally led its groundbreaking ceremony. The DOTr also moved the completion date of the project from 2025 to 2027 due to design changes. A priority project of the Marcos Jr. administration, the CBRT has a budget allocation of P28.78 billion funded through a loan package from the World Bank and French Development Agency with the National Government. Package 1 of the CBRT covers a distance of 2.38 kilometers from the Cebu South Bus Terminal along N. Bacalso Ave. to the front of the Capitol building along Osmeña Blvd. Interviewed on Wednesday at the Cebu South Bus Terminal (CSBT), Governor Garcia urged the CBRT proponent to expedite civil works in front of the bus terminal. Garcia said the project has already inconvenienced southern commuters. “Mayta mahuman na nang pagkubkob sa CBRT (I hope they will finish the excavation for the CBRT). Hinay kaayo ang turnaround sa atong mga buses (The turnaround of our buses has been really slow) and it affects the waiting time of our passengers,” she said. Garcia said they are thinking of transferring the CSBT to the Talisay City side of the Cebu South Coastal Road and converting the facility into an integrated multi-modal bus and ferry terminal that can also accommodate jeepneys and taxis. However, she said the Province is waiting for a private firm to submit an unsolicited proposal to build the facility. / EHP, JJL

SEVERAL mountain barangays in Cebu City are suffering from a lack of water and experiencing incidents of bush fires as a result of the dry hot season.This prompted the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (CDRRMC) to pass a resolution declaring 28 barangays under a state of calamity following the adverse impact of the weather phenomenon El Niño on the farmers in these areas.These include the barangays of Budlaan, Binaliw, Paril, Taptap, Pulangbato, Guba, Cambinocot, Pamutan, Sirao, Sapangdaku, Sudlon 1, Sudlon 2, Bonbon, Buot, and Tagbao.City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (CDRRMO) head Harold Alcontin, in a phone interview on Sunday, March 24, 2024, said over 500 farmers have stopped planting their usual crops due to damage caused by the lack of water which is a result of the dry spell.He was unable to provide a complete list of affected barangays.In an earlier report, City Agriculturist Joelito Baclayon said there are 115 hectares of farm lands in the 28 barangays affected by the extreme weather condition as of March.There are currently 10,719 registered farmers in Cebu City growing lettuce, cabbages, cauliflower, cucumber, eggplants, sweet corn and tomatoes, among others.According to a previous SunStar report, Cebu City’s agriculture industry could produce between P500,000 to P1 million worth of crops daily. The figures could go as high as more than a million a day during peak season.“We have to act now. We will not wait for the worse to come,” Alcontin said in a mix of Cebuano and English.Alcontin said the CDRRMC resolution has been endorsed to the office of City Councilors Phillip Zafra and Joel Garganera for the City Council to adopt it.Once the council declares these barangays under a state of calamity, Alcontin said the barangays can use their calamity funds, while the City Government can use its Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Fund (LDRRMF).He said the City currently has P600 million in its calamity and quick response fund and P100 million in its LDRRMF.He said Mayor Michael Rama instructed them to first use the P100 million LDRRMF, considering it’s only the first quarter of the year.The City Agriculture Department (CAD) has prepared P97 million which will be used for assistance to the farmers.SunStar Cebu tried to reach Baclayon on Sunday to get more details, but to no avail.Alcontin said one of the measures they are implementing now is distributing water in the mountain barangays.He said they are also coordinating with the Metropolitan Cebu Water District to deploy their trucks for water rations in Barangays Buot and Pulangbato.In previous reports, Baclayon said 40 percent of the city’s food supply come from its mountain barangays.Alcontin said one of their assignments is to ensure that the city’s food supply is not hampered, hence the declaration of a state of calamity.Alcontin said the CAD and the Department of Veterinary Medicine and Fisheries are also tasked to ensure food supplies in the city remain stable amid the El Niño.The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) declared on Friday, March 22, the start of the “Philippine Summer.”Alfredo Quiblat Jr., chief of Pagasa Visayas, earlier announced that Cebu has officially been under a dry spell since the last week of February.A dry spell refers to three consecutive months of below-normal rainfall, or a drop of 21 percent to 60 percent, or two consecutive months of way below-normal rainfall, or a drop of more than 60 percent.The El Niño phenomenon leads to decreased precipitation or, in some cases, a complete absence of rainfall, which can significantly impact crop yields and pose various environmental and economic challenges.Pagasa also warned that the phenomenon may persist until the end of May.

THE National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) has asked the proponent of the Cebu Bus Rapid Transit (CBRT) project to secure its approval first before resuming civil works on Capitol-owned lots. Chairman Victorino Manalo, in a letter addressed to the Department of Transportation (DOTr) dated Monday, March 25, 2024, requested Transportation Undersecretary Anneli Lontoc to submit two documents for the NCCA’s assessment and approval. The letter was posted on the official social media page of the Cebu Provincial Government on Wednesday, March 27. In the letter, Manalo asked Lontoc to submit an Archeological Impact Assessment (AIA) and development plans for the project to ensure that the CBRT complies with the National Cultural Heritage Act of 2009, or Republic Act 10066, and the General Appropriations Act (GAA). The AIA is required by Section 30(d) of RA 10066 and the Environmental Management Bureau of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources Memorandum Circular 005, series of 2014. The project’s development plan includes mitigation activities to protect the sight line with regard to built heritage, as required under Section 37 of the general provisions of the GAA. “In the meantime, we enjoin the DOTr not to conduct any work or changes in the area, especially excavation works, until we approve your AlA and development plans,” Manalo said. The Provincial Government met with NCCA officials recently to formally express concerns over the potential impact of the CBRT on the visual sight lines and buffer zones of the Cebu Capitol building. Meanwhile, CBRT implementers have started complying with the NCCA requirements. CBRT project manager Norvin Imbong, in a text message to SunStar Cebu on Wednesday, said the DOTr has coordinated with the University of San Carlos (USC) to help formulate the AIA. However, they will find out only on Monday, April 1, if USC can assist them, he said. Joint meetingImbong said their team will also have a joint meeting with the NCCA and the Philippine Historical Commission on Tuesday, April 2, at the Metropolitan Theater in Manila to discuss the matter. He said he will know by then if there are other requirements they need to comply with.Rama’s clarificationIn a statement on Wednesday, Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama reaffirmed his administration’s commitment to preserving heritage sites, while emphasizing the positive impact of the CBRT project.Rama said he had to say this so “neighbors, especially the politicians, will fully understand.”The mayor said he already raised the Capitol’s concern in a meeting with DOTr officials in Manila and the financing agencies, World Bank and French Development Agency. He also clarified that filing the complaint against Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia before the Office of the President had nothing to do with her stance to protect the Capitol building and its buffer zone. It was because of her “meddling” in suspending CBRT construction on Capitol-owned lots, he said.“We agree that we must protect the Capitol. There is no dispute there. The issue is the governor’s meddling, ordering the suspension of the CBRT. She has no right to do so. This is the reason why we have brought the issue to President (Ferdinand) Marcos (Jr.),” Rama said. Rama said the government is only striving to provide the public with “spacious, comfortable and safe transportation” through the BRT.Last February, the governor issued a cease and desist order (CDO) to the contractor of the first package of the CBRT project and directed it to cease civil works on a bus station with a leaf-like structure in front of the Capitol building along Osmeña Blvd. Rama responded by filing a complaint against Garcia before the Office of the President over her “meddling” in the CBRT project. Rama asked the President to “discipline and suspend Governor Garcia.”DelaysLast Monday, March 25, Imbong said they continued to work on other parts of the CBRT despite the governor’s CDO, which applies only to civil works on Capitol property. However, he said the CDO would probably delay the project anew, adding that the first package may not be operational in July as committed earlier. The CBRT project has been marred by several delays since its targeted implementation in 2016. It was only on Feb. 24, 2023 that President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. finally led its groundbreaking ceremony. The DOTr also moved the completion date of the project from 2025 to 2027 due to design changes. A priority project of the Marcos Jr. administration, the CBRT has a budget allocation of P28.78 billion funded through a loan package from the World Bank and French Development Agency with the National Government. Package 1 of the CBRT covers a distance of 2.38 kilometers from the Cebu South Bus Terminal along N. Bacalso Ave. to the front of the Capitol building along Osmeña Blvd. Interviewed on Wednesday at the Cebu South Bus Terminal (CSBT), Governor Garcia urged the CBRT proponent to expedite civil works in front of the bus terminal. Garcia said the project has already inconvenienced southern commuters. “Mayta mahuman na nang pagkubkob sa CBRT (I hope they will finish the excavation for the CBRT). Hinay kaayo ang turnaround sa atong mga buses (The turnaround of our buses has been really slow) and it affects the waiting time of our passengers,” she said. Garcia said they are thinking of transferring the CSBT to the Talisay City side of the Cebu South Coastal Road and converting the facility into an integrated multi-modal bus and ferry terminal that can also accommodate jeepneys and taxis. However, she said the Province is waiting for a private firm to submit an unsolicited proposal to build the facility. / EHP, JJL The Best Online Sportsbook. here is how to register at an online casino site in the Philippines:

WHAT would you do if you were in a tragic situation? Most people would prioritize saving themselves and their loved ones, but Ryan Conson was different.Conson, a 38-year-old volunteer firefighter from Barangay Looc, Mandaue City, fearlessly ran through blazing houses and pavements to put out the fire in Sitio Under the Bridge, located underneath the Mactan-Mandaue Bridge (also known as the first bridge) on Tuesday, March 12, 2024.He was one of the first responders who rushed to the site of the fire, prioritizing the safety of the entire community over his own.Peaceful lunchAt the Looc Gym on Thursday, March 14, Conson spoke to the media about his experience during the Tuesday fire. On Tuesday afternoon, enjoying a quiet lunch at home, Conson suddenly noticed black smoke in a nearby area. Conson wasted no time in rushing to their fire truck at the Barangay Hall to investigate the black smoke.“Padung mi didtos nasunogan, dayon nag set up mi direcho. Mao nang dagan kos sulod, nitira ko dayon. Di na gyud namo matabang kay dako na kaayo ang kayo, unya kusog na kaayo ang hangin sad. Hapit pa gani among fire truck nasunog,” said Conson.(On the way to the area affected by the fire, we set up quickly. I ran inside the fire zone and trained my fire hose on the fire immediately. Unfortunately, the fire had already become too large and the wind was too strong. Our fire truck even almost caught fire.)Despite the danger, Conson and his team bravely attempted to extinguish the fire, but it quickly spiraled out of their control.Home lost As the situation worsened, Conson quickly ran back home and handed his family, especially his child, to his siblings for safety. Afterward, he returned to his firefighting duties.After a few minutes, Conson faced the worst experience a firefighter could ever go through. While he was busy saving other houses from the flames, he lost his house.Conson narrated the heartbreaking moment when he had to battle the fire to prevent it from engulfing his home of 20 years.But his composure never faltered in fighting the fire. This time, he was not only saving his community but also neighboring areas from losing their homes with the fire getting more aggressive, just like he was. More than 500 families were eventually displaced by the fire after it burned 370 houses.Rise of a heroConson has a day job working as a staff member at a motorboat port near his residence in addition to his job as a volunteer firefighter. He said the fire incident that occurred in Sitio Paradise, also in Barangay Looc, on Nov. 22, 2022, which was close to his neighborhood, inspired him to join the firefighting brigade in his barangay.The Paradise fire destroyed about 600 homes, displacing 2,737 individuals, making it one of the largest fire incidents in Cebu in 2022.“I volunteered because I really wanted to help people,” said Conson. He then trained in firefighting techniques at the Bureau of Fire Protection Mandaue Office. Conson works as a volunteer firefighter and receives an honorarium of P3,500 a month. He is on call for two shifts, day or night, and promptly responds to any fire incident, even those outside his barangay when the help of their fire brigade is required.For him, his small salary does not matter as he finds happiness in saving people in fire incidents.His most memorable assignment was the fire last Tuesday. Conson is now one of the 515 families affected by the fire who have found temporary refuge at the Looc Gymnasium. The Mandaue City Government is currently hosting evacuees at the gymnasium and nearby Cesar Cabahug Elementary School.Sadly, Conson and his family were unable to save any of their belongings and only escaped the fire with their lives.The first-degree burns on his left arm, which he did not notice until the fire was successfully extinguished, was the only souvenir of his heroic deed and Sitio Under the Bridge’s tragic fate.While waiting for help from the government and other individuals, Conson’s patriotic heart remains, as he chooses to still be a volunteer firefighter despite his experience.“This is a new chapter of my life, but I will continue to help other people. I have been a volunteer firefighter for a year now,” he said in Cebuano. What is soccer called in the Philippines? .

THE National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) has asked the proponent of the Cebu Bus Rapid Transit (CBRT) project to secure its approval first before resuming civil works on Capitol-owned lots. Chairman Victorino Manalo, in a letter addressed to the Department of Transportation (DOTr) dated Monday, March 25, 2024, requested Transportation Undersecretary Anneli Lontoc to submit two documents for the NCCA’s assessment and approval. The letter was posted on the official social media page of the Cebu Provincial Government on Wednesday, March 27. In the letter, Manalo asked Lontoc to submit an Archeological Impact Assessment (AIA) and development plans for the project to ensure that the CBRT complies with the National Cultural Heritage Act of 2009, or Republic Act 10066, and the General Appropriations Act (GAA).

The figures could go as high as more than a million a day during peak season.“We have to act now. We will not wait for the worse to come,” Alcontin said in a mix of Cebuano and English.Alcontin said the CDRRMC resolution has been endorsed to the office of City Councilors Phillip Zafra and Joel Garganera for the City Council to adopt it.Once the council declares these barangays under a state of calamity, Alcontin said the barangays can use their calamity funds, while the City Government can use its Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Fund (LDRRMF).He said the City currently has P600 million in its calamity and quick response fund and P100 million in its LDRRMF.He said Mayor Michael Rama instructed them to first use the P100 million LDRRMF, considering it’s only the first quarter of the year.The City Agriculture Department (CAD) has prepared P97 million which will be used for assistance to the farmers.SunStar Cebu tried to reach Baclayon on Sunday to get more details, but to no avail.Alcontin said one of the measures they are implementing now is distributing water in the mountain barangays.He said they are also coordinating with the Metropolitan Cebu Water District to deploy their trucks for water rations in Barangays Buot and Pulangbato.In previous reports, Baclayon said 40 percent of the city’s food supply come from its mountain barangays.Alcontin said one of their assignments is to ensure that the city’s food supply is not hampered, hence the declaration of a state of calamity.Alcontin said the CAD and the Department of Veterinary Medicine and Fisheries are also tasked to ensure food supplies in the city remain stable amid the El Niño.The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) declared on Friday, March 22, the start of the “Philippine Summer.”Alfredo Quiblat Jr., chief of Pagasa Visayas, earlier announced that Cebu has officially been under a dry spell since the last week of February.A dry spell refers to three consecutive months of below-normal rainfall, or a drop of 21 percent to 60 percent, or two consecutive months of way below-normal rainfall, or a drop of more than 60 percent.The El Niño phenomenon leads to decreased precipitation or, in some cases, a complete absence of rainfall, which can significantly impact crop yields and pose various environmental and economic challenges.Pagasa also warned that the phenomenon may persist until the end of May.
