‘Chart disaster mgmt plan’

Presidential Adviser on Political Affairs Francis Tolentino urged the elected barangay officials of the 61 barangays of Bacolod City to chart a barangay integrated disaster management plan.

He encouraged who ever will be elected Liga ng mga Barangay president, to sit down with the 61 members of the Liga to chart the BIDMP, which is very important, he said, during the oath–taking of the 61 barangay officials Saturday at SMX Convention Center.

“If some barangays will say that they have very little fund, there is nothing in the Local Government Code that will prevent you from pooling together all your resources to make a viable BIDMP,” Tolentino said. moremoremore
