MARIVELES, Bataan – A Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (MDRRMO) will soon be put up in this town to further serve the public in times of emergencies and calamities. This was learned from Municipal Administrator Luis Gonzales who said that Mayor Jesse I. Concepcion has given the go signal to proceed with the project which he described as a “must.”
Aside from housing the MDRRMO, Mayor Concepcion also approved the putting up of the Public Safety Office inside the MDRRMO that marshals will use as their headquarters so they can easily respond to any emergency situations. “Gusto kasi ni Mayor Jesse na maayos agad tong risk reduction office para mayroong makakapag respond instantly kung may emergency at calamities para maminimize ang problema kung sakali,” pointed out Gonzales.
Since the assumption of Mayor Concepcion as mayor of this industrial town, residents here noted the effective flood control programs being implemented by the chief executive, lessening the once perennial flooding problem here. Concepcion has also intensified the coastal protection program in this fishing town, to prevent illegal fishing activities to enrich the fishing ground of this town. “We now have the PNP Seaborne Headquarters in Sitio Marina, Alas-asin that can also help us protect our coastal areas from illegal fishing activities,” added Gonzales.
For his part, Supt. Raynold Rosero, chief of police, had also intensified their barangay visitation program in a bid to bring the police service closer to the people, saying “the people themselves in the barangays are the ones informing the PNP about any illegal activities in their area, so we can respond immediately.”
