ROXAS CITY—More than 100 inmates of the Roxas City Bureau of Jail Management and Penology were oriented on disaster preparedness.

Roxas City BJMP Information Officer Ernie Olendo disclosed that aside from the 130 inmates, personnel of the said facility led by OIC Warden John Vincent Ybiernas likewise joined the briefing.

The disaster preparedness orientation was conducted by the Philippine Information Agency-led Capiz Association of Government Public Information Officers (CAGPIO) in cooperation with the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office.

Olendo stressed that with the said discussion, the inmates would be able to be equipped with appropriate knowledge and information on what to do especially in times of calamity such as fire, flood and earthquake.

“Disaster strikes anytime and anywhere and the jail here is not an exemption to it, the reason why we have requested that the advocacy will also be given to our inmates here,” he said.

For his part, CAGPIO President and Capiz PDRRM Officer Esperedion Pelaez said that part of the activities of the association under his leadership will focus more on conducting intensive orientation on disaster preparedness, to include fire and earthquake drills.

He said that through the conduct of barangay forum dubbed as “Hinun-anon sa Barangay,” which will also focus on environmental protection and climate change adaptation and other pressing issues and concerns in the area, the people’s needs for appropriate and reliable information will be addressed.

“We will bring the different government agencies to the grassroots through the Hinun-anon sa Barangay to update them of the programs, services and policies of the government,” Pelaez said. (J.B. Guillermo)

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However think about if you added
    some great images or video clips to give your posts more,
    "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this
    blog could certainly be one of the very best in its niche.
    Amazing blog!
