Pasay City Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano asked all city offices to strengthen their preparedness and capacity to respond to various disaster scenarios, including a “perfect storm” event or combination or series of typhoons, heavy rains, flooding, and other adverse climate-related occurrences.

Rubiano particularly alerted the Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (DRRMO), the City Health Office (CHO), Public Order and Safety Unit (POSU), the police and other frontline offices tasked to provide immediate relief and assistance to the people.

“All year round, we constantly beef up our capacity and efforts to reduce the risks of calamities and mitigate and manage their impacts in our communities. But the task ahead of us in this concern is so much bigger now because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the season of rains and typhoons,” Rubiano said.

Pasay City DRRMO head Dr. Boyet Maranan said his office has continuously enhanced its personnel, equipment, and facilities, adding that they have a substantial number of trained personnel grouped in two shifts of 24/7 standby response teams at the city’s incident command post (ICP) located at the Pasay Sports Complex.

 Maranan also said they have fiber boats with outboard motors, life vests, sets of emergency ropes, ring buoys, and other disaster response equipment, as well as a rain gauge installed at the ICP.
