Late text alert sa masasalanta ng Ompong

By: - 09/13/2018

TINULIGSA ni Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Zarate ang mga telecommunication company dahil wala pa umanong natatanggap na text alert ang maraming tao na nasa lugar na inaasahang sasalantain ng bagyong Ompong.

“Even us here in NCR we should receive text alerts about the incoming storm but not one alert has been sent,” ani Zarate na may-akda ng Free Mobile Disaster Alerts Law.

Ayon kay Zarate ang punto ng batas ay magbigay ng babala sa publiko upang makapaghanda at mabawasan ang pinsala kaya dapat ay maaga itong natatanggap.

“With the lateness or worse its none existence the objective is being defeated. Globe and Smart would improve their service especially since lives are at stake here,” dagdag pa ni Zarate.

“When we authored the law, the purpose was for the text alerts to contain a description of the disaster, and during the disaster the evacuation centers. After the disaster the text should contain the location of relief distribution, but text messages they sent in the past do not contain important information as intended by the law.”
