In a swift and compassionate response to the needs of the residents affected by the recent fire incident in Kaingin Bukid Gitna, Barangay Apolonio Samson, Quezon City's local government agencies demonstrated their unwavering commitment to supporting their constituents during challenging times.

Among the first to extend a helping hand were the Social Services and Development Department (SSDD), District Office, and the Disaster Preparedness and Operations Section (DPOS). These agencies immediately stepped in to provide essential aid to the affected residents, ensuring they had shelter and access to meals during this difficult period.

Recognizing the urgency of the situation, the Quezon City Health Department (QCHD) played a vital role in providing crucial support to the fire victims. Those who suffered injuries in the fire received prompt medical attention, while others were given medical assistance and access to mental and psychosocial support. These services were especially beneficial to the residents currently seeking refuge at the Masambong Community Center.


Collaborating closely with the local barangay, the QCHD facilitated the establishment of a dedicated area for breastfeeding and isolation. This initiative aimed to provide a comfortable and supportive environment for children, mothers, and pregnant evacuees during their stay.

The dedicated QCHD medical team, led by Dr. Hanniel Aberin, along with community health workers Maricar Gajudo, Daisy Petina, and Jasmin Medina, worked tirelessly to provide essential aid and support to the fire victims. Their efforts exemplify the city's commitment to the well-being and welfare of its residents, particularly during times of crisis.

Quezon City's local government agencies, through their swift and comprehensive response, underscore their dedication to ensuring the safety and security of the community in the face of adversity.
