Roxas City Wins Red Orchid 2nd Time For Its Anti-Smoking Drive PDF Print E-mail
Roxas City (June 13)--Roxas City once again won the prestigious Red Orchid award from the Department of Health for its non-nonsense drive against smoking.
This year, the City under Mayor Angel Alan B. Celino earned a perfect score of 100 percent based on the DOH's criteria for its relentless implementation of a 100-percent tobacco-free environment.

City Health Officer Amelita Robles, advocacy officer Fe Salgado and DOH representative June Regalado received the award during the World No Tobacco Day celebration at the Exhibition Hall B, Philippine Trade Center, Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City last May 29, 2012.

Mayor Celino expressed elation that the City was able to maintain its tobacco-free environment campaign, which was recognized by the DOH last year when it gave the City its first Red Orchid award.

Next year, the City is gearing for a Hall of Fame award as it eyes its third Red Orchid recognition.

Mayor Celino had pushed for the amendment of an anti-smoking ordinance passed in 2004 and rallied for its full implementation.

The amended ordinance otherwise known as Ordinance #009-2011 was approved last March 9, 2011 by the Sangguniang Panlungsod.
