City Mayor James ‘’Bong’’ Gordon, Jr. is reminding residents of Olongapo to aggressively participate in the city’s campaign against Dengue.

‘’Ang bawat Olongapeño ay may responsibilidad sa kapwa Olongapeño at sa kanyang komunidad. Pagtulungan natin na wakasan ang Dengue,’’ Mayor Bong Gordon said.

‘’Panatilihin nating malinis ang ating kapaligiran gayundin ang ating sarili. Tandaan natin na ang may malusog na mamamayan ay may malinis na kapaligiran,’’ Mayor Gordon added in calling for cooperation among residents.

The City Health Office (CHO) headed by Dr. Arnildo Tamayo, is continuously intensifying its year-round campaign against Dengue.

In line with this, the city government is pushing for the implementation of the “4S” or the four (4) ways to stay away from the dangers brought about by the Dengue disease.

The ‘’4S’’ includes, (1)Search and Destroy all Breeding Sites through regular cleaning of places where mosquitoes hatch eggs such as tires, bottles, flower vases, etc.; (2)Self-Protection through the use of mosquito nets and repellants; (3)Seek early treatment or medical attention immediately if fever persists for two days; and (4)Say “No” to indiscriminate fogging or defogging and ensure it is done only at appropriate times (1-2 hours after sunrise or 1-2 hours after sunset).

According to the Department of Health and City Health Office, to achieve a Dengue-free environment, these “Puksain ang kitikiti, Sugpuin ang Dengue” tips can help:

1. Perforate or cut open old tires to avoid collection of water and mosquito breeding.
2. Cover drums, basins and other water collecting materials to avoid mosquito breeding.
3. Replace water on flower vases at least once a week.
4. Clean and regularly remove water in the cupboard.
5. Regularly clean rain pipe or spout to avoid water collection and mosquito breeding.
6. Remove other prone materials that can collect water and mosquito breeding such as cans, bottles and bottle caps.
