DPWH prepares personnel and resources for Typhoon Mawar

Super Typhoon Betty, also known as Mawar, is predicted to make landfall in the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Friday night or early Saturday morning, and the Department of Public Works and Highways-Central Luzon (DPWH-3) has begun prepositioning personnel and equipment in anticipation of its potential effects.

Roseller Tolentino, regional director for DPWH, stated on Friday that he has informed all district engineering offices (DEOs) in the area to be ready for anything.

“It has been ordered that the district engineers of the several DEOs strengthen readiness measures. In crucial road sections that are vulnerable to flooding and landslides, they are instructed to make sure that manpower and quick response equipment are well-prepared and strategically positioned, Tolentino said in a statement.

HE ADDED THAT the DPWH Regional Office III Incident Command System has also been activated to carefully monitor the situation.

“We kindly request that everyone exercise caution and heed the official advisories issued by the appropriate authorities. He advised me to take the required safety steps, stay informed, and be ready for possible effects.

In the meantime, 58,856 family food packs have been prepositioned by the Department of Social Welfare and Development in Central Luzon (DSWD-3) in anticipation of the super typhoon.

The swift response teams of the organization are also prepared for deployment in the area, according to DSWD-3 information officer Reiner Gorospe.

“We are in touch with the regional governments. In an interview, Gorospe remarked, “They are the first responders, but we are here ready to help and support them should they need it.

The public has also been informed by the Northern Luzon Command (Nolcom) that troops are prepared for any potential super typhoon onslaught.

Lt. Gen. Fernyl Buca, commander of Nolcom, stated they are coordinating their preparation of measures and contingency plans with the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (RDRRMC), Office of Civil Defense (OCD), and other relevant authorities.

“Nolcom is ready and on standby to extend assistance like disaster response and relief work to minimize the damage that the typhoon may bring,” Buca said in a statement. “Staying true to its mandate as defenders of the North and protectors of the people,” Nolcom is prepared to provide support.
