Bacolod gets life locators,
scanners for rescue work
BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
Deputy Presidential spokesman Anthony Golez Jr. yesterday requested the local government of Bacolod City and Negros Occidental to make sure that the tools, equipment and accessories (TEA’s) for search and rescue that will be turned over to them today, are well maintained.
Golez, who is deputy administrator of the Office of Civil Defense, said he is entrusting the equipment to the local government units so the liability will be transferred to them.
At the Disaster Mitigation and Preparedness Capability Program yesterday in Bacolod City, he said that there will be a signing of the memorandum of agreement today, adding “If these equipment are placed in the wrong hands, it could be disastrous.”
