As the much-anticipated Dinagyang Festival 2024 approaches, MORE Power has announced the company’s proactive measures to ensure a smooth and uninterrupted celebration.
To address potential challenges during the festival, MORE Power has deployed a total of 30 teams strategically positioned in key areas. These teams are well-prepared to respond to any electrical concerns that may arise, ensuring the continuous delivery of reliable power throughout the event.
Engr. Bernard Bailey Del Castillo, Vice President for Network Development and Operations Group, emphasized the company’s readiness, stating, “We have already taken preventive actions, deploying 30 teams strategically across the city. We have coordinated with the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (CDRRMO) to facilitate immediate responses in case of emergencies.”
As part of their commitment to public safety, MORE Power urges both Ilonggos and festival visitors to exercise caution with balloons, ensuring they are properly secured to prevent unintended incidents. Uncontrolled balloon releases pose a potential risk of entanglement with power lines, leading to unscheduled power interruptions.
MORE Power advises residents and eventgoers to take precautions before leaving their homes for the Dinagyang festivities. Ensuring that appliances are unplugged, and circuit breakers are switched off, which can significantly reduce the risk of fire hazards and electrical incidents.
“We want everyone to enjoy the Dinagyang Festival to the fullest, and our team is working tirelessly to distribute and provide reliable power supply throughout the celebration,” added Engr. Del Castillo.
