THE City Gov­ern­ment of Ba­colod on Mon­day, December 2, de­clared sus­pen­sion of classes on Tues­day, December 3, from pre-school to high school lev­els, both pub­lic and pri­vate, due to the in­clement weather brought by Typhoon Tisoy.

Ba­colod City Mayor Eve­lio Leonar­dia or­dered the sus­pen­sion dur­ing an emer­gency meet­ing of the Ba­colod City Dis­as­ter Risk Re­duc­tion and Man­age­ment Coun­cil (BCDRRMC) yes­ter­day.

Leonar­dia also is­sued a mem­o­ran­dum di­rect­ing the BCDRRMC, es­pe­cially its im­ple­ment­ing arm

BCDRRMO, all Punong Barangays and Barangay Of­fi­cials, and al­lied agen­cies of the Ba­colod City Gov­ern­ment to go on “red alert” in prepa­ra­tion for Typhoon Tisoy.

Red alert means that in an­tic­i­pa­tion of an im­mi­nent emer­gency sit­u­a­tion, the lo­cal gov­ern­ment unit (LGU) re­quires re­sponse agency staffing at the CDRRMC Com­mand Cen­ter and im­me­di­ate in­ter-agency co­or­di­na­tion.

The mayor’s or­der was based on the rec­om­men­da­tion of the BCDRRMC, which he chairs, af­ter an emer­gency meet­ing at the Ba­colod City Gov­ern­ment Cen­ter Mon­day af­ter­noon [Dec. 2].

Leonar­dia said he will make cor­re­spond­ing ap­pro­pri­ate or­ders based on the next weather bul­letin is­sued by Pagasa.
