Mis. Occ. to organize a committee on preparedness to natural disastersby Pat Nano
OROQUIETA CITY, Misamis Occidental, Jan. 20 (PIA) – The Provincial Government, here, plans to organize a committee to ensure that the public will know what to do even before an emergency situation takes place.
“People has to have a degree of preparedness from natural disasters by taking care of the environment so that what happened in the provinces of Misamis Oriental, Lanao del Norte and Bukidnon due to Typhoon Sendong can be prevented,” Governor Herminia Ramiro said.
She, however, assured that the said committee will not be a duplication of any of the committees already organized by the province.
The Governor is confident that there will be no hitch with the organization of such committee and that it will work out smoothly with the guidance of the Office of Civil Defense (OCD), the local government units (LGU) and the national government agencies concerned with environment protection in the province.
