A party-list solon urged the school officials to ensure the safety of the students while conducting different drills and other outside activities.

ACT Teachers Rep. France Castro has expressed concern over the reports that about 120 students were taken to hospitals after they fainted and showed symptoms of heat exhaustion during a fire drill in Cabuyao City, Laguna.

Around 2,000 students of the Gulod National High School Extension in Barangay Mamatid participated in the fire drill that started around 3:20 pm last week.

According to Castro, while she understands the intention of the fire or earthquake drill, the safety of the students must ensure while conducting the activities.

“Sana ay tiyakin ng mga school officials ang kaligtasan ng lahat lalo na ng mga estudyante kapag may mga drills para di sila napapahamak,” Castro said.

She proposed to schools to have proper coordination with the local government units (LGUs) and Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP).

“Nakakalungkot na ang mga drill sana na maghahanda sana sa mga kabataan sa sakuna ang siya pang naging dahilan para sila ay magkasakit at maospital tulad ng nangyari sa Cabuyao, Laguna at maging dito sa Metro Manila na dahil naman sa sports activity Napakatindi ng init sa ngayon wag sanang ibilad sa araw ang mga bata lalo pa at karamihan sa kanila ay di nakakakain bago pumasok sa paaralan dahil na din sa kahirapan,” the teacher solon said.
