Blue Ribbon Campaign Launched in Roxas City PDF Print E-mail
City Health Officer Dr. Amelita Robles said that the campaign aims to make all indoor places in the city smoke-free during a press conference for the second Red Orchid Award of the Roxas City government.

“Roxas City is the first to launch the campaign in the region,” she said, adding that the city’s Red Orchid Award in 2011 was the basis for the selection.

During the program, various hotels and restaurants who are implementing a 100 percent smoke-free in their respective environment were given Certificate of Merit “to honor the people who have done their share for clean air.”

Smoke-free ordinance enforcers and local tri-media practitioners were also recognized in the program which also included a Signing of Commitment to further strengthen the anti-smoking campaign.

A motorcade along the major streets of the city was also spearheaded by the CHO before the media interaction as part of the celebration.

The CHO also boasts of its accomplishments citing 109 smokers who were nabbed by the no-smoking ordinance enforcers from January to May 23 this year.

The advocacy has also lowered down tobacco-related illnesses and deaths in the city which is among the major contributing factors for the award.
