Speaking in behalf of Gov. Manuel “Manoling” C. Ortega, the retired Police Colonel urged the graduates of the MDCC Training Course, especially the present Chiefs of Police, to be active also in the fight against noise pollution especially on motorbikes which are equipped with modified mufflers. “I urge every one of you to be vigilant, not only matters of emergencies such as calamities but also on other pressing matters. Noise pollution contributes to the poor health of babies during pregnancies. That is why babies born in the rural areas are healthier than those from the urban areas, violators must be penalized” he explained.
