RDCC 2 asks more rubber boats from NDCC

Tuguegarao City (8 October) -- PCSupt. Roberto M. Damian, Chairman, Regional Disaster Coordinating Council 2 (RDCC) has requested for additional rubber boats from Defense Sec. Gilberto Teodoro.

Damian based on their assessment that Region 2 needs more rubber boats for search, rescue and relief operations, especially during evacuation.

He also pointed out that even during the first visit of Sec. Teodoro, before "Typhoon Pepeng" landfall in region 2, local officials have already requested for additional rubber boats seeing its significance during flood disasters.

"If possible we need one rubber boat per municipality but I believe it is impossible, so I am just requesting five per district of region 2," Damian said.

On the other hand, Damian also informed the secretary that they had experienced problems in terms of communication lines because all their equipments bogged down when the electric posts fell down and cable lines were cut off due to strong winds of the typhoon.

He said all their communication lines cannot monitor and update the people and the media when their gadgets were paralyzed.

Because of this, Damian asked the NDCC if they could possibly give some solutions on the said problem considering that Region 2 is a disaster prone area.

Sec. Teodoro noted said request and promised to take appropriate action. (Oliver B./PIA 2) [top]
