To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…
Muntinlupa Mayor Ruffy Biazon has signed a resolution for the prepositioning of relief goods in the city by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).
He signed Resolution 2023-178 passed by the Muntinlupa City Council which gives him the authority as representative of the city government to enter “in a Relief Prepositioning Agreement (RPA) with the Department of Social Welfare and Development Field Office National Capital Region (DSWDFO-NCR) represented by its Regional Director Monina Josefina H. Romualdez.”
The prepositioning of relief goods allows the DSWD to put food and non-food items in storage facilities in Muntinlupa as preparation for any disaster.
“The City of Muntinlupa, within the period of three (3) years, supports the Prepositioning of relief goods posed by the Department of Social Services and Development (DSSD) as this would contribute in the increased preparedness for disaster of the city,” according to the resolution.
According to the Muntinlupa Legal Office, “During the disaster, the City is at the frontline of service delivery and thus, must always be prepared and equipped to take emergency action and relief measures. The prepositioning of food and non-food items from DSWD-NCR is a welcome augmentation to our disaster preparedness efforts.”
“The Muntinlupa Contingency Plans for Disasters (Flood, Earthquake and Covid-19 pandemic) has been adopted by the Sangguniang Panlungsod through various legislative measures where the policies, course of action, resources allocation aimed to build disaster resilient communities and institutionalize arrangement and measures for reducing disaster risks are underscored,” the resolution stated.
