Trained employees of Davao Light and Power Co. were one of the first responders to help put out a fire using the fire hydrants installed at the Bajada Power Plant during an incident last December 27, Tuesday at Purok 1, Brgy. 19-B, Bajada, Davao City. Davao Light installed four fire hydrants in 2009 to assist nearby residences in case of fire. Also, Davao Light conducts fire safety, prevention and control seminar not only to its employees but also to its neighboring puroks including that at the back of Bajada Power Plant.
Last December 16, Friday, Davao Light and Power Co., Inc. in partnership with Aboitiz Foundation Inc. commemorates the excellent works of selected electricians through the 5th Elektrisyan ng Bayan Award at the Grand Men Seng Hotel, Davao City.
“The role of electricians is very important. They make sure that the electrical current flows in a safe and reliable manner to outlets and electrical equipment,” Davao Light’s Assistant Vice-President, Rossano Luga says.
Nine months after being isolated or 2 days before Christmas eve, the Samal submarine cable is reconnected to one of Davao Light & Power Co.'s substation.
This is upon the request of Island Garden City of Samal (IGACOS) Mayor Al David Uy to provide stable electricity to the Island City. The gensets currently supplying electricity is not sufficient to energize the entire Samal island, according to the Mayor.
Davao Light agreed to reconnect the submarine cable as there now exists an unused capacity in its Pampanga substation. Also in the spirit of Christmas, people of Samal could enjoy the holidays with uninterrupted power.
Davao Light and Power Company in partnership with Aboitiz Foundation donated 75 sacks of rice for the indigenous peoples in Davao City last December 1 at the Task Force Davao Headquarters, Sta. Ana Wharf, Davao City through the Philippine Army's Task Force Davao and its partner Youth for Peace-TALBOS.
This annual Christmas donation is in support to Task Force Davao's Christmas Outreach to the Lumads and Muslims dubbed as "Pinaskuhan Para sa Lumad ug Muslim" which Davao Light has been supporting for the last 12 years, since the project started in 2004.
