POLE FIRES PERSIST: BFP-Iloilo City records five more during holiday season

first_imgCongress instead granted MORE Electricand Power Corp. (MORE Power) a 25-year power distribution franchise. There is,however, a two-year transition period to ensure uninterrupted service toconsumers, thus the CPCN to PECO. Meanwhile, power distributionfranchise holder MORE Power stated in a statement:  “We no longer have to accept these fires as atypical occurrence around the city. We now have an option. There is a newdistribution utility looming to take over to deliver what PECO failed toprovide its consumers — better customer relations, adequately maintained lines,adequate investment in distribution facilities, less distributor-related poweroutages, prompt restoration of power services, and MOREKOREK billings.” PECO and MORE Power are locked in alegal battle. PECO is questioning the legality of MORE Power’s franchise. Thecase is now with the Supreme Cour. The tolerance of illegal connectionsor “jumper” was also a culprit to the fires caused by faulty electricalconnections, it added. BFP clarified that only electricalcables could cause fires and not telephone or cable TV wires, contrary toPECO’s justification. * Remonville Subdivision, BarangayTabuc Suba, Jaro on Jan. 2. All of these electricity pole fireshappened at night, according to the BFP. Fortunately there were no reportedinjuries or deaths. ANOTHER FIRE. This electricity post on Remonville Subdivision in Barangay Tabuc Suba, Jaro, Iloilo City caught fire on Jan. 2. Residents were thankful that firemen responded quickly enough. The fire was prevented from spreading. The ERC eventually came out with itsfindings: PECO’s protective devices were not properly rated and designed, someof its poles were leaning and in unsafe positions, and that some electricitymeters were clustered and installed in an Elevated Metering Center withoutsecuring prior ERC approval. ILOILO City – Electricity pole firespersist in this southern city. During the holidays there were five suchincidents from Dec. 23, 2019 to Jan. 2, 2020 and according to the Bureau ofFire Protection (BFP) the poles belonged to Panay Electric Co. (PECO) whosepower distribution franchise expired on Jan. 19, 2019 yet. * on Guzman Street, Mandurriaodistrict on Dec. 25 PECO was then ordered to explain thesewhich ERC considered as operational lapses. * in front of the barangay hall onLocsin Avenue, Barangay Tacas, Jaro district on Dec. 30 Congress refused to extend PECO’sfranchise due to numerous consumer complaints arising from its ageingdistribution system, including leaning electric poles, spaghetti-like hangingelectricity lines, overbilling, and unprofessional handling of consumercomplaints. BFP data showed the pole fires to bein the following areas: * in front of the transport terminalin Barangay Ticud, La Paz district on Dec. 23 It added: “A quick tour around thecity would reveal spaghetti lines, lopsided poles, and electric meters stuck inelectric poles from top to bottom…a picture of disaster waiting to happen…Whendid PECO actually spend for expansion and upgrades not only to accommodate thegrowing power needs of the city but to improve its services to the ordinaryIlonggos?” The reasons for these police fireincidents were dilapidated and ageing wooden poles and electrical wires andoverloaded transformers of the 95 years old power utility PECO, according tothe BFP. According to Iloilo City fire marshalChristopher Regencia, of the 461 fire incidents recorded here in 2019, nearlyhalf or 218 cases were pole fires. The rest were structural fires (121),rubbish fires (37), and vehicular fires (nine), among others. Two months ago the Energy RegulatoryCommission (ERC) conducted an investigation on the series of pole fires hereupon the prodding of Mayor Jerry Treñas who had expressed concern over thepossible threat to public safety of “inadequately-maintained lines, poweroutages and hazardous electric posts.” * entrance of Juntado Subdivision,Zone 3, Barangay Calumpang, Molo district Franchise-less for almost a year now,PECO is operating merely by virtue of a provisional Certificate of PublicConvenience and Necessity (CPCN) issued by ERC.

Mourinho concedes Man Utd incapable of living with Liverpool

first_img“You (the media) didn’t say too many nice things about them and good things about us. It was made for another result. We wanted to avoid that and we fought really hard,” said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.Liverpool laid siege to the visitors’ goal early on with David de Gea stretching to keep out a low drive from Roberto Firmino, Ashley Young clearing off the line and Fabinho firing wide from the edge of the box.“A brilliant start. One of the best performances we’ve had since I’ve been at Liverpool,” added Klopp. “The first half an hour was outstanding.”Only City have kept Klopp’s side from scoring in the Premier League this season and a United defence that has kept just one clean sheet in the league since September never looked capable of holding out like they had in their two previous visits to Anfield.Mourinho’s men were finally breached when Mane controlled Fabinho’s chipped ball into the box on his chest and volleyed past the onrushing De Gea on 24 minutes.However, Liverpool’s momentum was punctured by an Alisson gift 12 minutes before the break.The Brazilian was Liverpool’s hero with an injury-time save to secure the Reds’ place in the last 16 of the Champions League against Napoli on Tuesday.But he spilled Romelu Lukaku’s simple cross into the path of the grateful Lingard to bundle the ball into an unguarded net.The second half followed a similar pattern but it wasn’t until Klopp turned to Shaqiri 20 minutes from time that Liverpool found a way through.Three minutes later De Gea did well to prevent Ander Herrera turning Mane’s cross into his own net, but the ball fell for Shaqiri and his effort cannoned off Young and in off the underside of the bar.Share on: WhatsApp Jose MourinhoLiverpool, United Kingdom | AFP | Jose Mourinho hinted Manchester United’s players are simply not good enough to compete with Liverpool after being brushed aside 3-1 at Anfield on Sunday by the Premier League leaders.Mourinho claimed ahead of the game that Liverpool have had luck on their side this season, but while there was fortune in substitute Xherdan Shaqiri’s two deflected strikes in the final 17 minutes, the visitors did not deserve anything more than a fifth league defeat of the season.“The players gave everything and when they give everything I’m never upset with them. I have a good feeling towards them, they play in relation to their qualities, the same way the opponent played in relation to their qualities,” said Mourinho.“They (Liverpool) are fast, intense, aggressive, physical, they play 200 miles per hour with the ball and without the ball.”Mourinho also turned on his players’ injury record after having to name a patched up defence with Eric Bailly replacing Chris Smalling at the last minute after the latter picked up an injury in the warm-up.“We have lots of problems related to physicality,” added Mourinho. “We have lots of players that I could consider injury problems, because some of our players are always injured.”However, there will be little sympathy for the Portuguese’s protests as he left £89 million signing Paul Pogba on the bench for the full 90 minutes, while £50 summer recruit Fred didn’t even make the squad.Victory took Liverpool back a point above Manchester City and a mammoth 19 clear of United, who remain in sixth and are now 11 points off the top four.However, Mourinho insisted United can still qualify for next season’s Champions League.“I know that we lost some other matches but we played Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City away, probably the three best teams apart from Tottenham,” he added. “I think we have more possibilities to do more points in the second half of the season than the first.”– Liverpool lay seige –The contrasting form showed by both sides this season continued as United strained to keep a rampant Liverpool at bay and were only level for so long thanks to a huge error by home goalkeeper Alisson Becker.last_img read more
