AQMS Project launched, featured on ABS-CBN morning show
It’s official: our Air Quality Monitoring System Project is on!
On March 9, 2016, the Club installed an air quality monitoring machine at the Apartment Ridge Underpass of the Makati Commercial Estate Association (MaCEA) on Ayala Avenue, signaling the launch of the Air Quality Monitoring System Project, one of the Club’s two milestone projects on this, our 50th anniversary year.
The installation was made possible with the cooperation of the Makati Commercial Estate Association (MaCEA), the organization that oversees and manages public infrastructure developments in the Makati Central Business District (MCBD). The approval of the project was facilitated by the recommendation of PP Cesar Campos, a MaCEA governor.
The event was covered by ABS-CBN News and featured on Umagang Kay Ganda, the network’s highly-rated morning variety show. Make that EARLY morning. Pres. Eddie was there at the unholy hour of 5AM to preside over the activity and for a TV interview by news reporter Tina Marasigan. Also present at the MaCEA underpass was Community Service Dir. Eddie Galvez, who had made arrangements for the interview.
The launch sets in motion the AQMS, which seeks to fill the information void on air quality by providing the public with air pollution readings in real time to warn them when pollution has reached a dangerous level at a certain location and advise them to take precautions to safeguard their health.
