GBP embarks on school electrical maintenance project in support of Fire Prevention Month

GBP performs electrical maintenance at NJ Ingore Elementary School in the City of Iloilo to ascertain the safety of the students and teachers.

Global Business Power Corporation (GBP) subsidiaries, Panay Energy Development Corporation (PEDC) and Panay Power Corporation (PPC), initiated the electrical maintenance of school buildings at NJ Ingore Elementary School in Iloilo City as part of their Social Development Program (SDP) and in support of the country’s fire prevention campaign.

GBP’s electrical maintenance initiative aims to fix the electrical system of the said public elementary school in Brgy. Ingore, La Paz – the power generation company’s host barangay – in order to ensure everyone’s safety especially from possible dangers such as fire or explosion. After performing an inspection, GBP’s Panay subsidiary re-modified the electrical lines and installed conduits in 11 out of 13 school buildings that were amenable for repairs to avoid impending risks due to the faulty and overloaded electrical system.

Although face-to-face classes are currently not being held at the school because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, GBP persevered to immediately implement the initiative to safeguard the welfare of students and teachers once regular physical classes resume.

NJ Ingore Elementary School is situated at GBP’s host barangay. GBP also supports a number of students in the said public elementary school as part of its scholarship program.

“We would like to highlight the importance of doing initiatives like this school safety project, particularly in observance of the Fire Prevention Month.  It is the perfect time to discuss and raise awareness about the causes, hazards, and dangers of fire,” said FVP Petronilo R. Madrid – GBP Panay Site Head.

True to its commitment of enlightening lives and empowering progress, GBP works hand-in-hand with the communities surrounding its plant facilities in order to address the specific problems they are facing. Through GBP’s Social Development Program (SDP), the company gets to provide responsive solutions to community dilemmas.
