By Joanna P. Diaz-Sabado (JNPD/JDS/PIA- La Union)

SAN FERNANDO CITY (PIA) -- The Province of Pangasinan with its Pangasinan Crisis Intervention Center in Lingayen town was recognized by the Philippine Commission on Women as the first Gender and Development (GAD) local learning hub in Ilocos Region.

The facility was among the seven local learning hubs in the country recognized this year for “their efforts in gender-responsive local governance towards the promotion of human right, gender equality, and the empowerment of all women and girls and for providing and sustaining gender-responsive programs and services to women and children in difficult circumstances.”

The center, employed with licensed social workers, is operating 24 hours and serves as an action center to immediately respond to cases of individuals and families in crisis situation.

Among their services include the provision of a temporary shelter, rescue operation; referral services; provision of financial assistance; and program advocacy, information and education campaign.

“Our target clients include sexually-abused children, victims of physical abuse, sexual abuse like incest, rape and acts of lasciviousness, psychological abuse, survivors of human trafficking, and some strandees,” Mona Sabiano-Alavazo, Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office technical division chief, said.

She added, “They can be provided three to seven days of temporary shelter in the center."

Last year, they catered to 353 individuals in crisis situation.

Established in 2006, the provincial government hopes that more LGUs will also be recognized as learning local hubs on GAD.

The facility is located at the Lingayen District Hospital Compound with 24-hour hotline 0933-8653710.

DTI implements online system for product certifications

By April M. Bravo (AMB/PIA Pangasinan)

DAGUPAN CITY (PIA) – As part of its continuing support to promote ease of doing business, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in Pangasinan informs the public that processing of all applications for product certifications can now be made online.

Natalia Dalaten, officer-in-charge provincial director of DTI-Pangasinan, said that with the full implementation of the Product Certification Information Management System (PCIMS), there is no need for entrepreneurs to go to any DTI office to process their papers.

Dalaten said the DTI’s Bureau of Philippine Standards (BPS) can now use the PCIMS to process import commodity clearances (ICCs), as well as Philippine standard (PS) safety and quality certification mark licenses.

“Through the PCIMS, all manufacturers and importers of products covered by mandatory standards shall apply their licenses and clearances using the online and paperless system of the BPS,” she told the Philippine Information Agency.

“They only have to request a registration form by emailing, and then applying through,” she said.

However, she said that the payment of certification fees and claiming of the certificates will still have to be done at the DTI office.

“For further information on how to access the PCIMS, visit the DTI-Pangasinan office at the 2nd Floor of Star Building, Arellano Street, Dagupan City or call telephone numbers (075) 529-6177 or 515-3183 or send an e-mail at,” Dalaten said.

SCUBAsureros keep Hundred Islands litter-free

By April M. Bravo (AMB/PIA Pangasinan)

ALAMINOS CITY, Pangasinan (PIA) – In pursuit of preserving the pristine and clean waters at the Hundred Islands National Park (HINP) here, the city government of Alaminos and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources have undertaken another SCUBAsurero underwater clean-up last Friday.

“SCUBAsurero” is a term coined by combining the words “scuba” and “basurero” or trash collector as licensed scuba divers forage for garbage under the waters around the islands.

The underwater clean-up program was launched by the city government of Alaminos in 2016 under the leadership of Mayor Arthur Celeste.

Miguel Sison, tourism officer of Alaminos City, said that SCUBAsurero was used to be conducted every once or twice a year but since the city government advocates the conservation, protection and rehabilitation of the Hundred Islands, it now became a monthly activity to sustain this premier tourist attraction in Pangasinan.

Sison said around 30 trained divers from the city government of Alaminos, including volunteers from national government agencies and private groups, conduct the underwater clean-up drive every month and collect garbage indiscriminately thrown by some visitors.

For Mamerto Viray, team leader of the SCUBAsureros, the project has done wonders as it tremendously decreased the volume of underwater garbage.

“Ngayon, medyo malinis-linis na,” he said.

Viray said the Hundred Islands Diving Club plans to train non-divers and the youth for free to help in maintaining the cleanliness of this tourist destination.

He also requested visitors to keep the place litter-free, saying “Pakiusap, kapag may basura dapat ilagay sa wastong lalagyan at kapag may ibinigay na garbage bag, pakidala sa mainland.”

Viray is referring to the “Basura Mo, Iuwi Mo” program also implemented by the city government of Alaminos in the HINP.

Under the program, a P200 refundable group bond is required of visitors going to the HINP.

The group will be given two bags: one for biodegradable trash and another for non-biodegradable materials.

Once the visitors return to the wharf or the mainland and turn in their garbage for proper disposal by the Alaminos City Tourism Office, they get back the P200 deposit.

They would also be given a gift certificate good for two persons for free entrance and free environmental fee on their next visit to the HINP.

The smoking ban is also strictly implemented at HINP.

Hundred Islands post 65K tourist arrivals in May

By Hilda Austria (PNA)

ALAMINOS CITY, Pangasinan -- A total of 65,604 tourists visited the famous Hundred Islands National Park (HINP) here from May 1 to 24 this year, the Alaminos City Tourism Office (CTO) announced.

“The trend is still increasing since many are making the most of the summer vacation before the classes start in June (3),” said CTO officer Miguel Sison in an interview on Monday.

He said majority of the tourists flocked the Hundred Islands on Saturday and Sunday posting an average of 5,000 and 6,700 tourist arrivals, respectively.

Sison noted that 13,700 tourists visited the national park on Black Saturday (April 20) alone.

“Most of the visitors went to the Pilgrimage Island where a chapel was newly constructed and St. Claire and St. Joseph statues were newly built,” he said.

The month of May’s figure brought the total number of tourists who visited HINP from Jan. 1 to May 24 to 326,254.

The CTO recorded 561,909 tourist arrivals in 2017 but the number declined by 2.6 percent in 2018 due to weather disturbances, particularly typhoons.

Sison said HINP has 25 main islands of which eight are open to tourists, while the Bat and Monkey islands are just for viewing and the rest are still being developed.

“We used to have only three active islands,” said Sison, referring to Governor’s island, Children’s island and Quezon Island.

“But now we have the Clave Island, Lopez Island, Marcos Island, Monkey Island, Bat Island and the Old Scout Island, wherein a portion of it is the snorkeling area for its corals,” Sison said.

He said the activities being enjoyed by the tourists are banana boat ride, jet-ski ride, island-to-island ziplines, helmet diving, island hopping and swimming, among others.

LTO holds road safety advocacy campaign for Pangasinan youths

By Ahikam Pasion (PNA)

LINGAYEN, Pangasinan -- The Land Transportation Office (LTO) regional office here has reminded Pangasinan youths to follow traffic laws to minimize or eliminate road accidents.

Lawyer Teofilo Guadiz III, LTO-1 director, said youths are usually victims of road accidents because of their impulsive nature and need for speed.

“Based on our statistics, half of accidents involve youths with age ranging from 17 to 20 years old, and majority of these accidents are violent accidents, leading to death,” Guadiz said in an interview Wednesday after the holding of the road safety advocacy dialogue.

Guadiz thus urged the public, especially motorists, to take extra caution when driving in order to prevent accidents which could lead to death. “Accidents could happen anytime, and these are usually caused by recklessness. Kabataan man o hindi, involved lahat dito (Youth or not, everybody is involved here),” he said.

Aside from the LTO, the event participated by some 250 youths from Pangasinan, was also co-organized by other branches of the government including the Philippine National Police and the Department of Education, among others.

By Ahikam Pasion (PNA)

DAGUPAN CITY -- Pregnant women in this city may now avail of free pre-natal check-up and delivery at the diagnostic clinic and lying-in center, which was formally opened on Thursday.

Mayor Belen Fernandez, in an interview Friday, said the facility, worth more than PHP20 million, was funded by both the city government and the Department of Health (DOH).

“Share natin is the maintenance, some of the equipment. Sa building naman, may share tayo at ang DOH (Our share is the maintenance, some of the equipment, while for the building we shared the expenses with the DOH),” Fernandez said.

The diagnostic clinic features state-of-the-art X-ray machines, ECG (electrocardiogram), and CT (computed tomography) scan while the lying-in clinic offers birthing beds and wards for birthing moms to recover.

The lying-in clinic will serve pregnant mothers on a 24-hour basis.

The CT scan machine was given to the clinic by the Villaflor Hospital, a private hospital in Dagupan.

The diagnostic clinic would also cater to the needs of Dagupeños, especially the indigent, the city government employees, as they would no longer have to cash out for an examination.

Residents could avail of services using the equipment for free, but they should first register at the City Health Office.

“We are targeting an initial 20,000 residents in Dagupan, but they need to register in order to get a green card ID.

This will entitle its owner to avail of the free services offered,” Fernandez added.

Meanwhile, a newborn hearing screening equipment is also set to be delivered to the clinic soon.

The equipment, worth USD35,000, will be donated by the Rotary Club of Dagupan.

“The equipment is very vital so that we can immediately detect if the newborn infant has hearing impairment.

Through the equipment, we could identify and treat it right away,” city health officer Dr. Ophelia Rivera, said in an interview.
