24/7 EMERGENCY MEDICAL AND RESCUE SERVICES

The CSFP City Government, through its City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (CDDRMO), provides 24/7 Emergency Medical/Rescue Services for the people of San Fernando which can be accessed through the emergency hotline "961-HELP" or 961-4357. The "San Fernando Rescue" or SAFRU, CSFP's local emergency medical/rescue team, is composed of trained personnel who readily respond to medical and trauma cases during normal time and other specialized rescue needs, i.e. flood water rescue, during disaster times.

Already dubbed as one of the best rescue teams in the region, despite just being organized on June 2012, SAFRU is continuously being equipped by the City Government through various trainings and provision of equipment. SAFRU also comprises the City's disaster preparedness training arm which provides orientations, seminars, drill and similar activities for the City's barangays, school and private establishments/organizations.

SAFRU's creation is just one of the various and holsitic efforts of the City's Government to strengthen the City's disaster preparedness and resiliency. Such efforts are enabled and institutionalized by virtue of the CSFP CDRRM Code (Ordinance No. 2012-003), its 5-Year Local DRRM Plan (2015-2019) and Flood and Earthquake Contingency Plans, consistent with the provisions and requirements of Republic Act 10121 or Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010 - a strong evidence of the CSFP DRRM Council's commitment to ensure the welfare of the Fernandinos in preparation for and in response to disasters and calamities.

WORKING TOWARDS ZERO WASTE THROUGH COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT: THE SAN FERNANDO MODEL

The City Government of San Fernando Office, through the City Environment and Natural Resources Office, is highly committed to the full implementation of RA 9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000. It has several plans and programs in place to enjoin the participation of the barangays and all stakeholders.

The City Government continues to gain fame and recognition for its empowerment of barangay in solving the garbage problem. In July 2013, the National Solid Waste Management Commission and the DENR-EMB awarded City of San Fernando, Pampanga a Certificate of Commendation in recognition of its invaluable contribution and support on the establishment of Material Recovery Facilities (MRFs) in all the 35 barangays. Several government officials and non-government groups have conducted benchmarking activities in the model MRFs of the City to learn from their best practices.

The write-up on Rappler.com entitled "Garbage law impossible to implement? Look at San Fernando" has gained several views and shares on the worldwide web. Likewise, the model MRFs in Barangay Maimpis and Pilar Village have been featured in the documentary "Kaya: Zero Waste" shown last May 10, 2014 at TV5. Mother Earth Foundation (MEF) has showcased the City's ecological solid waste management programs in its book "MEF@15": On the Road to Zero Waste".

There are now 155 complete and fully functional MRFs all over the city including those in barangays, schools, subdivisions and business establishments and several more under construction and some partially functioning. The City Government continues to provide financial assistance in the amount of P150,000.00 to barangays and P50,000.00 worth of construction materials to homeowners associations for the construction of their MRFs. This is in addition to the 146 tri-bike and pushcarts given to them for the collection of segregated wastes.

SAGIP ILOG PROJECT/FLOOD MITIGATION PROJECTS

Perennial flooding was a big challenge for the City, and for several years, the San Fernando river has been considered uninhabitable. Taht is why its clean-up, expansion, and rehabilitation is one of the City's landmarks initiatives. This project, dubbed as the "Sagip-Ilog" or Save the River Project, is a partnership between the City Government and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). The waterways improvement is a step towards the total mitigation of floods and the revival of a river system which is connected to Manila Bay. The City now experiences very minimal flooding despite heavy rains. We have also brought life back to our San Fernando River.
