Santiago City creates disaster management office

Santiago City, Isabela (9 October) -- The city government has created a disaster management office aimed at addressing disasters that may occur in the city.

The newly created office will be named Santiago City Disaster Management Office under the Office of the Mayor.

The move of the city officials to create the office is to respond to the climate change that is already being experienced in the country bringing disasters which are unusual compared to past calamities like typhoon Ondoy and Pepeng.

Santiago City's Executive Assistant for Public Information Sammy Baltar said that the office will be manned by Mr. Claro Comoda, head of the Department of Public Order and Safety. Comoda was replaced by Mr. Jayson Gonzaga.

Baltar said the newly created office will respond not only during natural calamities but also for immediate rescue on vehicular accidents which will need emergency response and first aid.

The employees to be recruited will undergo trainings related on disaster management like rescue operations, first aid, and other emergencies that usually happen during calamities.

Initial equipments and facilities have already been provided by the city government like motor boats, rubber boats, fire truck, first-aid kits and scuba diving gears.

These equipments have already proven their effectiveness during the conduct of rescue and relief operations when typhoon Pepeng crossed the province last week.

Baltar said the city government is true to its mandate to help the residents to be out of danger and safe in times of disasters and calamities. (PIA Isabela) [top]
