By Gideon C. Corgue

PAGADIAN CITY, May 23 (PIA) –The Department of Education lauded the active involvement of Zamboanga del Sur I Electric Cooperative, Inc. (ZAMSURECO-I) in the conduct of the 9th Brigada Balik Eskwela Electric Check and the 6th Local Government Unit and Churches Check in the province of Zamboanga del Sur which carries the theme: “Kabalikat ng Mamamayan Para sa Kaligtasan ng mga Paaralan.”

To promote electrical safety, the electric coop has organized 16 teams composed of technical men and women to conduct the simultaneous electrical check in their assigned areas starting May 15 - 19, 2017.

“I am grateful that the ZAMSURECO-I conducted the ‘Brigada Balik Eskwela Electric Check’ because we have availed free electrical services of their technical men,” Marivic Flores, principal of Camp Abelon Elementary School said.

“We did not spend money to hire private electricians to install electrical wirings in our school,” Flores said adding that hiring an electrician, even for a small job like installing a light switch, would incur a costly fee.

“We are very fortunate that our school is one of the beneficiaries of their program. It surely redound to the benefit not only of the teachers but also our students. We thank them for having a big heart for our school,” she added.

“With the active support and cooperation of ZAMSURECO-I, we have fulfilled the callings of the Department of Education: ‘Isang DepEd, Isang Pamayanan, Isang Bayanihan para sa Handa at Ligtas na Paaralan,’” Elsa Claros, principal of Bagong Silang Elementary School, Barangay Balangasan said.

“We have added electrical wirings and electrical outlets in our rooms to avoid dangers and complexities,” she added.

Claros said they will be more happy if the electric coop will make a commitment to help the schools every National Schools Maintenance Week or Brigada Eskwela program.

Meanwhile, Audit Manager Jovito Pingca, leader of team no. 3 said they enjoyed their work in the field much more when they have seen that teachers were happy because of their presence.

Pingca said they are all glad to support the electric coop’s program which is almost a decade already, providing services and working as collective advocates for the communities.

“The activity is an integral part of the Coop’s corporate social responsibility aimed at promoting electrical safety in educational institutions by means of securing the integrity of electrical connections of public school classrooms and environment,” Pingca said quoting General Manager/CEO Engr. Jose Raul Saniel. (ALT/GCC/PIA-Pagadian City)
