P.A. Properties’ Corporate Safety & Protection Office (CSPO) kicked off The Health, Safety & Disaster Preparedness Month with an opening salvo of email newsletter tips on typhoon, flood and office safety and wellness, such as the hazards to look out for in every the workplace. The Bureau of Fire Protection of San Pedro City Fire Station, on the other hand, graced the second week of the campaign with a seminar on fire safety, prevention and protection, as delivered by Senior Fire Officer 2 May S. Quincena. Reminding the audience that being aware of the fire does not only save lives but also prevent further disasters linked to its dangers, she stated that no one should ever compromise safety over anything else. “It doesn’t always have to be the point persons and responders who will save a person from a disaster; awareness and preparedness start with one’s self. If you can save yourself, you can help others,” SFO2 Quincena instilled in every employee during her talk. The afternoon seminar was led by Col. Narciso R. Alamag (RET), who talked about the dangers, precautions of before, during and after an earthquake.

In partnership with the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) for the third week campaign, P.A. Properties carried out a bloodletting program involving 33 employees who successfully passed the screening for blood donation. For Ms. Charmaine, an Executive Assistant, donating blood has always been an act of gratitude for the assistance she received from P.A. Properties several years back. It was two years ago when the company helped her family during the times they are in need of blood for her father’s dialysis. Since then, she regularly participated in bloodletting drives that P.A. Properties in collaboration with Philippine Red Cross conducts. “I would like to thank God for giving me a family like P.A. Properties who is truly concerned about welfare of its employees, and the society as well,” she stated. This is the company’s 2nd donation drive since 14th of February this year.
