Project Dragon launched

Councilor Ricardo Tan has launched Project Dragon because of the threat of Typhoon Basyang about to pass Negros Occidental, a press release from his office said.

It also said that, Tan, a member of the Chinese Chamber Volunteer Fire Brigade, believes that private sector cooperation is necessary as the resources of the government are sometimes inadequate in times of calamities and disasters.

Tan said,“People helping people is my concept for Project Dragon”, the press release said.

Tan is calling on all those who want to volunteer their services and resources, to coordinate with his office at the Bacolod City Government Center so that a data base of volunteers can be formed and tapped when the need arises. “We will start it now as we anticipate that Typhoon Basyang might, God forbid, cause flooding in our city”, hesaid.

Tansaid he will mobilize several of his personal vehicles to visit flood prone areas starting last night until today since the weather forecast reflects that Basyang might cross the AOR of Bacolod City, the press release said.

“The vehicles are marked with Project Dragon signs and the public can always call on them for whatever assistance is necessary”, Tan said.He also appealed to the public to listen to the radio and follow the advice of the City Disaster Management Team.

The temporary Project Dragon hotline is 0949-497-6053, the press release added.*
