Netizens Laud CSF For Disaster Preparedness [ Monday, 21st of July 2014 | 3 years ago ]
This is after Mayor Edwin Santiago’s instruction to activate San Fernando Incident Command System under the city’s disaster risk reduction and management office on Tuesday, a day before the storm made its landfall.
“We established an emergency operations center at Heroes Hall where all pertinent information are disseminated through the internet, media outfits, academic institutions, PNP, BFP, among others” said Santiago.
With this, the official facebook page of the city [www.facebook.com/CSFP.CIO] was trooped not only by netizens but by the academe sector for updates especially about class suspensions.
“You did a good job which made me more proud of my being a Fernandino” said by Fer Santos External, Affairs and Media Director University of the Assumption.
Netizens were also thankful for the “hourly updates” made by the city.
“Kudos to the Mayor and the CDRRMC” posted by Fredl Azares.
“Dakal a salamat king saup yu kapamilatan na ning pamagbalita yu kng malalyari ngening panaun na ning bagyu” commented by Lisa Vega Lacap .
One social media user also tried to tamper a post by replacing the date of announcement to cause confusion.
However, netizens themselves bashed the misleading information.
Lenlen Dizon Toledo said “sana po yung mga walang magawa wag ng magpost ng mga fake na announcements...hindi po makakatulong sa mga students yan."
Sa mga panahong ganito hindi nakakatuwa yang mga ganyang biro...pls lng.”
Moreover, Jhen Kabigting pleaded “sna wag mag post ng fake na inedit n bulletin ng hnd nali2to mga tao.”
Meanwhile, city civil defense officer Raymond Del Rosario reported that “San Fernando, as of this moment, is flood free.” He said that despite of the public storm warning signal number 3 experienced by the province, the city’s major thoroughfare remained passable and that no pre-emptive evacuations were made.
“Our preparations for these past months paid off” said Del Rosario explaining that the city government as early as January of this year has conducted series of flood mitigation projects and awareness campaigns on disaster preparedness.
