Four years ago nobody listened, cared or understood my vision. I'm glad that our Government finally realized what I have been suggesting before.
To avoid panic, looting & chaos it is necessary to convey messages or instructions before, during & after any disaster.
It is also vital to receive/transmit information & news in the community in times of crisis. Also, it is crucial to warn occupants of impending danger. Hence, the following items are highly recommended:
- PA/GA system - Public Address / General Alarm allows emergency page or announcement via any speaker-equipped street lights.
- Alarm or siren - warning device in case of Flooding, storm Surge, Tidal Wave, Fire, Earthquakes, etc.
- Satellite phone (cannot be damaged by any Typhoon) enables local officials (mayors/governors) to communicate with our National Government.
- Radio base station (cannot be damaged by any Typhoon) enables Barangay (the smallest administrative division in the Philippines) officials with mayors/government and amongst themselves.
