POWER:  An adjustment will be made in the load of the Barangka grid.  The transformers of Bellarmine Hall will be upgraded to accommodate the transfer of the Loyola School's Registrar's Office and OSCI in November. Unless it is changed, the current 52 KVA back-up generator at Bellarmine Hall will only be able to support selected office lights and a limited number of computers.   

Meralco has scheduled power outages for maintenance work from 21 to 22 October 2002.  The affected areas are:

1. Time: 11:15 pm  to 7:00 am (21-22 October 2002)
  Grid: Katipunan
Areas: Grade School Complex, University Gym, Manila Observatory, College
Covered Courts and Communication Arts Building

2. Time: 11:15 to 11:45 pm (21 October) & 6:30 to 7:00 am (22 October)
Grid: Katipunan
Areas: Loyola Schools Complex, PIPAC

COMMUNICATION:  Excavation work behind Xavier Hall to Fr. Masterson Drive and in front of the Church of Gesu is for the internet and telephone connections of the offices that will move to Bellarmine Hall.  The new underground conduit will also allow the Campus Network Group to upgrade internet connections to the High School and the Jesuit Residence.

WATER:  Samples taken from the JGSOM and Pollock overhead tanks and the Faculty Housing cistern have been tested.  The results conform with the Department of Health standard for safe drinking water.  

SECURITY:  To preempt office break-ins and thefts, the following measures are being taken to strengthen security on campus:

1. Exterior building lights will be left on all night.
2. Installation of additional exterior building lights and streetlights. (Loyola Schools is requested to consider replacing decorative lights along College Lane with bright security lights).
3. Carpark lights will be left on until midnight.
4. Only residents and authorized personnel will be allowed on campus from midnight till 3:30 a.m. 
5. Construction workers will be confined to work areas and quarters from 9:00 p.m. till 5:00 a.m.
6. ID check and roving patrols will be intensified.   
7. Entry of pedestrians at Gate 1 will be monitored even on weekends and holidays.  The Gate 1 pedestrian gate will be closed at 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. on weekdays and from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. on weekends.

Security is everybody's concern.  The 51 day-shift guards and 31 night-shift guards cannot effectively cope with security and traffic management for a community of 15,000.  Given this constraint, the community is requested to actively share the responsibility of securing the campus by:

1. Displaying or wearing ID and encouraging others to do the same. 
2. Not leaving bags, backpacks and belongings unattended. 
3. Reporting suspicious unattended bags, backpacks or boxes in lobbies, toilets, or near trashcans to security guards.  
4. Cooperating with security checks that are conducted periodically.  

Security measures can be effective only with the support of the community. All motorists are reminded to lock their vehicles when parking on campus. Security continues to find unlocked vehicles on campus.  The following cars were found unlocked at the High School carpark:    

   Date               Unlocked cars          License/Sticker No.                        Owner

                         Toyota Lite Ace         TNX 367 / G-05945             High School Student

                          Toyota Corolla          TGL 445 / E 109                  High School Faculty
 17 Oct              Ford Lynx                 WNC 501 / E 113                High School Faculty
 18 Oct              Honda Civic               UMF-628 / G-07877           High School Student

The use of smart chip cards is now being considered for next schoolyear. They will replace the current ID and will have other features that will minimize the use of cash on campus.  A preview of the uses of the smart card in New York University can be viewed at: http://www.nyu.edu/nyucard/
MAINTENANCE:  Among the requirements of the City Engineer's office for the annual inspection of facilities is the creation of  a Safety and Health Committee (Rule 1040, PD 442).  This committee will be composed of representatives from the school units.  Engr. Josephy F. Almosera, M.E. of the Univ. Physical Plant has attended the Occupational Safety and Health
Seminar conducted by QC Industrial Safety Council and is the university's specialist in this area.
