The National Telecommunication (NTC) Regional Director Nestor P. Monroy, is in Antique to spearhead the establishment of a unified radio communication network system for the Municipal Disaster Risk and Reduction Management Officers (MDRRMO’s) of the Province.

Monroy also said that Iloilo’s Second District has already established the Rapid Emergency Telecommunication (RETT) which helps the MDRRMO’s to relay messages faster and more efficiently by using one radio frequency.

“Communication is very vital in times of emergency so there is a need for the MDRRMO’s to have a unified communication system”, Monroy added.

This year’s Annual Program Planning on Leadership and Empowerment (APPLE) of the MDRRMO also discussed about Barangay DRRM Plan Template, Orientation on the Utilization of LDRRM funds, Organization of RETT and Initial Organizational Planning, Provincial DRRM Plan and DRRM related Ordinances.
