The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) said it is fully prepared to respond to emergency situations as Typhoon Tisoy approaches.

“We are 100-percent prepared for Typhoon Tisoy. As a matter of fact, we have already activated the four quadrants in the metro to facilitate a more efficient response when emergency situations arise during typhoon,” MMDA General Manager Jojo Garcia said in a press briefing.

Metro Manila’s four quadrants are:

– North Quadrant: Quezon City, Caloocan, Valenzuela, San Juan;

– South Quadrant: Pasay, Makati, Parañaque, Las Piñas, Muntinlupa, Pateros, and Taguig;

– East Quadrant: Marikina and Pasig; and

– West Quadrant: Navotas, Malabon, and Manila.

“Our rescue personnel are on standby to respond to any emergency situation,” he said.

Garcia noted that all pumping stations in Metro Manila are functional.

“As of now, the MMDA has 61 pumping stations all over Metro Manila. These water pumps are expected to help alleviate flooding,” Garcia said.

He noted that the agency is in close coordination with the Metro Manila Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (MMDRRMC) and local government units.

Present at the briefing were representatives from the Department of Interior and Local Government, Department of Public Works and Highways, Department of Social Welfare and Development, National Capital Region Police Office, and Philippine Coast Guard.
