PNP disaster response unit
QUEZON CITY, Philippines – The Philippine National Police (PNP) has activated its disaster response unit to augment emergency response force in flood-affected areas due to the inclement weather brought about by tropical cyclone “Inday” and the southwest monsoon.
Residents in low-lying areas may expect help from this inter-agency unit which will serve as reinforcement in case of evacuation.
The agencies involved are the PNP’s Special Action Force, Maritime Group, Highway Patrol Group, Police Community Relations Group and the Regional Public Safety Battalions.
The unit has equipment and supplies ready for deployment in cyclone-affected areas such as in Metro Manila, Zambales, Bataan, Cavite, Batangas, Mindoro Provinces, Palawan and Western Visayas. – Lea Ylagan / Marje Pelayo
