POWER:  At 10:20 a.m., last Friday 27 March, the fire alarm sounded at the
Rizal Library.  MR. GUILLERMO "JIMMY" C. MANLAPAZ, Rizal Library Safety
Officer traced the initiating device on the 3rd floor of the Annex building.
Earlier a fluorescent bulb that was not working was replaced by a library
personnel and turned on.  A defective ballast emitted smoke that triggered
the smoke detector.  The incident showed the effectiveness of the library's
smoke detector system.  It also tested the alertness and immediate action
response of the library personnel in handling emergency situation.  

At 8:40 p.m. of the same day, thirteen persons were trapped in the Leong
Hall elevator that malfunctioned.  SG JOEY C PANGANIBAN & UPP personnel MR.
PACIANO M. ASENCE, JR., MR. ALLAN D. DE GUIA and MR. JOSEL M. ACIDO released
the trapped personnel.  Nobody was injured.    

Later in the evening at 11:45 p.m., a ceiling mounted orbit electric fan
overheated and caught fire in a coeds' room at the Eliazo Residence Hall.
The coed called for assistance and SG ERNESTO T GELLADULA (Cervini guard)
put out the fire.

Middle:	Close up of the damaged orbit fan.
Right:	Singed ceiling with peeling paint.  The plywood was not burned.    

Nobody was injured and there was no damage to property other than the singed
ceiling and orbit fan.  Mr. Timothy G. Gabuna, Residence Hall Director had
the coeds moved to the University Dormitory.

Smoke detectors are essential for residences on campus.  There are still
some residential facilities that do not have smoke detector systems.  ENGR.
JOSEPHY F. ALMOSERA, University Safety Officer advised these units last year
to install smoke detectors but they have not done so because of budgetary
constraints.  They have been advised to install smoke detectors this year as
required by law.

PARKING:  Changes were introduced this year in the parking arrangements for

High School complex.
2.	Loyola Schools gave the guards large signs to inform incoming
vehicles that parking at the High School area was full.  The drivers were
then directed to park at the North, Northwest and East carparks that still
had available slots.
