Higher Education's guiding philosophy upholds extension as a major function co-equal with research and instruction. the study involved 352 residents from Eight (8) coastal puroks using a questionnaire. Most of them were aged 19-28 (32.44%) and high school graduates (27.56%).

Respondents found the implementation of health and sanitation component as excellent (m=4.55). They appreciated most the reduction of garbage (m=4.96) and clean surroundings (m=4.58). The nutrition feeding component was very good (m=3.78) with preference to the importance of nutritious food (m=4.49) and improvement in the health (m=3.74)

The Environment Conservation and Awareness was excellent (m=4.43). They found of planting trees (m=4.80) and mangrove (m=4.68) as most relevant. The Disaster Awareness and Preparedness was very good (m=3.73). The residents appreciated the awareness on flash flood (m=4.01) and fire-emergency (m=3.80) response. Knowledge on first aid (m=3.42) would need to be supplemented.

There were no significant differences existing between the mean ratings given to the health and sanitation and environmental conservation components. The same was true when respondents were grouped according to educational attainment.

It was recommended to provide a drainage system to prevent breeding of dengue mosquitoes and improve health and sanitation; more feeding activities for children; trainings on first aid; and for LGU's NGO's to commit to the health, sanitation and environmental conservation programs of Brgy. Punta Taytay.
