Training Research and Community Extension

OPERATION SECOND CHANCE OUTREACH

Don Bosco Technology Center College Department has Technical Shop operating at the Cebu City Operation Second Chance Center for the youth in conflict with the law.

The outreach program is a collaborative effort between Don Bosco Technology Center, the Cebu City Task Force for Street Children and the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology.

A full-time Instructor, together with two BSTE students who take their practicum at the Operation Second Chance Facility teach student technical skills in Wood and Furniture and soft skills to prepare them in their re-integration to society.

WEATHER ALERT RADIO (WARS)

This broadcast facility came about due to observed devastating effect and havoc caused by storms and typhoons. Don Bosco Technology Center College students show prowess in the technical and engineering field when they created and invented the complement technology of PAGASA’s weather monitoring system.

The Weather Alert Radio System (WARS) is a broadcast facility that gives round-the-clock source of weather reports and information to help the public prepare for the day ahead. Additional information, including river stages and climatic data, is also provided. During emergencies, routine broadcasts are interrupted for warnings, watches and other critical information.

Public safety experts agree: the receivers should be standard equipment in every home. They are especially valuable in places that are entrusted with public safety, including hospitals, schools, places of worship, nursing homes, restaurants, grocery stores, recreation centers, office buildings, sports facilities, theaters, retail stores, bus and train stations, airports, marinas and other public-gathering places.

In the pipeline is the full operation of the Weather Alert Radio System in Central Visayas through the grants-in-aid of DOST-PCIERD and DOST-PAGASA Mactan Station with the collaboration of National Telecommunications Commission Region- 7 and BAYAN Telecommunications Inc.
