RDCC-6 launches flag warning project guidelines

Iloilo City (21 June) -- The Regional Disaster Coordinating Council (RDCC) launched June 21 the guidelines of its project which involves the use of flag warning signals at seaports, fishing ports and coastal barangays during typhoons in Western Visayas.

During the project launching held at the conference room of the PNP Regional Office at Camp Delgado here, the RDCC also presented a Plaque of Recognition to outgoing RDCC chair PNP Regional Director Chief Supt. Isagani Cuevas.

The flag warning signals will vary depending on the Public Storm Warning Signal raised by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) in a locality.

RDCC-Communications and Warning Group chair Engr. Nestor Antonio Monroy of the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) presented an overview of the guidelines during the launching program.

Monroy said the region's flag warning signal is the first of its kind in the country. "It's a unique flag warning system," he said.

The guidelines on the hoisting of flag warning signals at ports and coastal areas during typhoons were adopted by the RDCC after a series of meetings and consultations with boat operators and other stakeholders in the region last year.

The RDCC awarded the plaque to Cuevas in recognition of his leadership and support that enabled the council to make outstanding achievements in disaster preparedness and risk reduction especially during natural calamities.

Cuevas will end his stint as PNP 6 regional director upon his retirement from the service effective this month. He has served as head of the police organization in the region since 2008. (PIA 6) [top]
