Engr. Raul Bernard A. Jabines was instructed to inform all business owners that an evaluation of their electrical wirings will be conducted by the Engineering Department of the local government soon after. Upon evaluation, recommendations will be made to which the business proprietor will be advised to heed.
The mayor was hopeful that with a pro-active initiative such as this, the town would continue to be safe from any untoward disasters, such as fires, that can be prevented if necessary precautions are observed.
