Part of “Oplan Kaluluwa 2012”, traffic re-routing is in anticipation of the influx of people to the memorial parks in the city. Scheme implementation will be handled by the Parañaque Traffic Management Office headed by Traffic Chief Luis Perez II.
“It is our utmost priority to ensure the smooth flow of traffic and the safety of persons on these holidays. We encourage everybody to comply with regulations, cooperate with traffic enforcers and other authorities and maintain safety consciousness.”, Mayor Jun Bernabe said.
The local chief executive instructed the City Health Office and the Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office to set up first aid/lost-and-found stations inside and outside the memorial parks. He also directed the Parañaque PNP and concerned barangay government units to increase visibility in the streets where pickpockets may lurk and in the communities where “akyat bahay” may do a heist. Meanwhile, the Parañaque Bureau of Fire Protection was also told to go on heightened alert.
