City health officer Dr. Rachel Dilla said medical professionals have been deployed to cemeteries in Bulua, Greenhills, Divine Shepherd, and Bolonsiri starting October 1. They will be there until November 2.
An Incident Management Team has been activated to coordinate with owners of private cemeteries and barangay officials whose areas host public cemeteries. It will particularly monitor the cemeteries in Bulua and Bolonsiri, “because these are expected to be the most crowded cemeteries” on November 1, said City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Department (CDRRMD) head Nick Jabagat.
The CDRRMD will be deploying five rescue vehicles, eight ambulances, and other ambulances of barangays, City Health Office, and volunteer organizations starting November 1.
On Monday, October 30, Police Regional Director Brigadier General Ricardo Layug Jr. said 2,294 personnel would be deployed during Undas. They include 1,260 regional police personnel, 365 augmentation forces, and 669 members of advocacy groups.
