Catalina in maintaining cleanliness and security in the area.

Lobregat was heeding the request of Chairman Jimmy Villaflores for the deployment of additional personnel who will also assist them in looking on the security management of the school facilities where looting was discovered.

Villaflores said he only wanted to maintain orderliness in the temporary shelter while negotiations with the barangay and the lot owners of the location where these people have occupied are still ongoing.

“Makahuya canaton na management del escuela, ta presta lang kita con el lugar, debe mantene kita el limpiesa y areglo aqui na entero escuela,” Villaflores said.

Rep. Lobregat meanwhile said that he himself have seen the actual situation of the evacuation center and it is for this reason why he has done several initiatives in helping the affected residents not only on their personal hygiene and daily needs, but also in maintaining sanitation and security.

“I can see the needs of the fire victims, but we must also consider the orderliness and sanitation in the area, we do not want further health problem to occur in the future,” Lobregat said.
