Pasay City suspends classes due to heat

(UPDATE) PASAY CITY on Wednesday suspended classes in all levels due to extreme heat.

Pasay City Mayor Imelda Calixto-Rubiano said the order was based on the recommendation of the City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office.

Department of Health adviser Dr. Anthony «Tony» Leachon issued the same recommendation.

«I would recommend that face-to-face classes should be suspended because of the extreme hot conditions, especially for the children. In areas outside of the NCR (National Capital Region), most of them are living outside the schools, so they have to walk. Very, very, very dangerous,» he told The Manila Times.

«We have to protect our kids right now from the extremely hot conditions, or else they could get a heat stroke,» Leachon added.

Senate Minority Leader Sen. Aquilino «Koko» Pimentel 3rd has reiterated his call for «work break» during extreme heat.

«I am very much concerned about the safety of our workers, especially those working outside directly exposed to the intense heat of the sun, including construction workers among others,» Pimentel said.


He added that the Department of Labor and Employment should work with the private sector in implementing a similar policy.

«As I said last year, there should be a temporary work break or compulsory rest periods when the heat index reaches a danger level,» Pimentel said.
