to be intensified
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
Dumaguete City’s smoke-free enforcers and Task Force Sagar personnel were ordered to remove advertisements promoting all brands of cigarets in its jurisdiction as part of an all-out campaign to enforce the ordinance on anti-smoking.
City Administrator and Task Force Sagarr ground commander, William Ablong, said Operation Baklas had been enforced after the ordinance’ enforcement, including in the barangay level. This time, it will be replaced with an information and education campaign materials on the ill-effects of smoking, in partnership with Smart Communications which provided the IEC materials, he added.
In the second year of implementation of the anti-smoking ordinance, all 30 barangay captains of Dumaguete were invited to a smoke-free symposium in two batches, and to other activities next week.
