For first responders, no work from home Phoenix
For first responders, no work from home due to COVID-19
In December 2019, a viral respiratory disease first detected in China has spread worldwide. The latest 2019 coronavirus was named SARS-CoV-2 and it is known as the 2019 coronavirus disease or COVID-19 outbreak.
Chandler Fire Station 283 has no mutual distancing or remote service.
Coronavirus work shutdowns have little impact on the first responders of the Valley who are already on duty if needed.
"We still do our jobs together," said Natalie Wood, firefighter. "We understood what we were doing before we went into the work. We enjoy it. It didn't change anything." After the coronavirus pandemic, firefighters from Chandler hadn't changed anything, although they were taking extra clean-up precautions before going out.
Firefighter Nicholas Del Valle said, "We are upholding our safety levels for little extra hygiene requirements." The Chandler 283 Fire Station is only around seven people, at any time, so the crew isn't so worried about social distancing. "In which there was a mask, gowns or gloves, a little more than normal we could wear."

Isotope Hydrology Studies in the San Narciso, Zambales, Philippines Basin
The application of isotope techniques in assessment of available freshwater resources in the shallow aquifer of San Narciso, Zambales was found to be practical and useful in the formulation of policies and in providing the scientific data for incorporation in the Comprehensive Land Use Plan of the province. Five scholars from the Middle Managers Class Batch 14 of the Development Academy of the Philippines conducted a hydrological study in the Zambales basin. The study aims to determine the rate and mechanism of recharge, determine the vulnerability of the aquifer to pollution and establish base line data on the water quality parameters set forth by the Philippine National Standards for Drinking Water (PNSDW). Groundwater samples from deep wells, hand pumps and dug wells, and river water were collected within the study area from July 5, 2017 to July 7, 2017. At least 72% of the shallow wells in San Narciso were found to have total coliform plate counts of more than 1.1 MPN/100 mL. Wells in Siminublan showed iron (Fe) concentrations ranging from 3.2 ±0.2 ppm to 5.4±0.2 ppm which exceeded the limits set forth by the PNSDW. Organic Chemical Constituents (pesticides) of 2.0 ± 0.1 was observed in a well in Grullo (51 masl) Samples were analyzed for stable isotopes (δ2H and δ18O) using Laser Water Isotope Analyzer. In addition, estimation of mean residence time or groundwater age were done on some wells in Paite, La Paz, Dalipawen, Grullo, Siminublan, and Manatakan, using tritium-helium dating technique. Stable isotope values of groundwater from shallow and deep wells in the La Paz, Paite, Dalipawen, Siminublan, Grullo, and Manatakan laid within the Global meteoric water line (GMWL) and the Philippine meteoric water line (PMWL) which indicate that majority of the aquifers were being recharged locally by rain water. Water samples from shallow wells in La Paz were relatively more isotopically enriched as compared to majority of the wells. Chemical analysis of groundwater in San Narciso indicate a Ca-Mg-HCO3 water type which is a typical characteristic of groundwater with short mean residence time. The major source of active recharge to the San Narciso basin is rainfall. Recharge or infiltration of modern water to the groundwater happens mostly during the months of July to August, during the months of high waterlogging.
The researchers were : Ralph Lago, Gerna Manatad, Plormelinda Olet,
Raymond Sucgang, and Jayvee Villagracia.
