Bulacan Gov Sy-Alvarado welcomes officials of Samal Island from Davao province
Bulacan Governor Wilhelmino Sy-Alvarado on Thursday received several officials of the Island Garden City of Samal from Davao del Norte province.
The delegates, composed of department heads of the Samal local government, were led by Vice Mayor Orly Amit. The group paid a courtesy call on Sy-Alvarado at the latter’s office in Malolos City.
The visiting officials toured the Communication, Command and Control Center of the Bulacan Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office for possible adaptation of the same technology, the Bulacan provincial government said.
“They were toured around the headquarters of Bulacan Rescue where they were exposed to their latest equipment and systems in identifying and observing rainfall, river and flood stages,” the Samal LGU said in a separate statement.
Prior to meeting Sy-Alvarado, the Samal officials also paid a courtesy call on Bulacan Provincial Administrator and PDRRMC Action Officer Eugenio Payongayong.
“Thank you, Bulacan, for the warm reception,” the Samal LGU said.
The Samal officials capped off their disaster response-orientation trip with a visit on Friday at the headquarters of the Office of Civil Defense and National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council in Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City.
