Delegations seeking shelter in PSC dorms
Manila – Almost 450 persons are housed at the Philsports Complex and the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex.
On Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) Chairman William "Butch" Ramirez's instructions, delegates seeking shelter with the agency's dormitories are provided with accommodations, food and transportation while everyone awaits Typhoon Ompong's exit.
In a joint statement issued today, the sports agency and the city government of Baguio City assured all participants of the Batang Pinoy Finals that all measures to ensure the safety of everyone are being undertaken.
Baguio City Mayor Atty Mauricio Domogan has alerted police in their area to escort all delegations going up to the City of Pines. The highway patrol will be ready to escort vehicles transporting Batang Pinoy delegates once they reach Rosario junction in La Union.
Genesis Bus Line, a partner of the PSC for this Batang Pinoy event, support PSC and Baguio City in their efforts to keep everyone safe and comfortable by providing transportation to delegations and personnel.
Registration is ongoing but shall be closed tomorrow, Saturday, due to the weather disturbance.
To lessen the transaction time, coaches may now process the registration of their team on behalf of the athletes.
Ramirez also said that the agency and Baguio City “are making every effort to make it easy, safe and comfortable for participants.”/
