The Quezon City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (QCDRRMC) was placed on Orange Alert starting 1pm Tuesday, 27 August 2019 as the city ramped up preparations for the expected heavy rains brought by Tropical Storm Jenny.

Orange alert means all available resources of the city government will be readied for possible deployment or are being activated. Pre-emptive evacuation will also be set in motion in disaster prone areas.

Mayor Joy Belmonte said the city government is ready to deploy 200 emergency personnel to respond in case of flooding, rescue, and evacuation.

“We are not taking this storm lightly, gagawin natin ang lahat ng aming makakaya para malimitahan ang epekto ng bagyong Jenny,” Mayor Belmonte said.

Since Saturday, 24 August, the city’s Urban Search and Rescue Team is on Yellow Alert or on call status in anticipation of any emergencies.

During the Pre-Disaster Risk Assessment attended by the members of the QCDDRRM Council, QCDRRMO chief Karl Michael Marasigan explained the city’s protocols during bad weather. Although the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) only issued a yellow rainfall warning, the city’s protocol is to always have it 'one step ahead' as a precautionary measure.

"Inaasahang papasok ang bagyo mamayang gabi hanggang bukas nang madaling araw kaya ngayong hapon pa lang ay activated na ang action teams natin," Marasigan said.

As a pre-emptive action, QC has been conducting declogging, dredging, and cleaning of line canals and riverways. The city also lowered the billboards and cranes and trimmed the branches of trees.

Pre-emptive evacuation and information dissemination regarding the storm is already coordinated with barangays, as well as the camp management.
