CLARK FREEPORT – To promptly mobilize personnel in preparing and responding to any crisis situation, Clark Development Corporation (CDC) recently created its Crisis Mitigation and Resilience Office (CMRO) in this Freeport.

CDC President and CEO Noel F. Manankil with CDC Board of Directors chaired by CDC Chairman Jose De Jesus approved the creation of CMRO that will support the state-owned firm and Clark locators in their crisis management program.

To efficiently and effectively facilitate its tasks, the CMRO will establish five operational areas that are aligned with the National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council’s objectives. These include Disaster Prevention and Mitigation, Disaster Response, Disaster Preparedness, Disaster Rehabilitation and Recovery and Crisis Mitigation.

Accordingly, in the occurrence of a crisis or disaster in this Freeport, the Public Safety Division with CMRO will take the lead in addressing the situation while the Incident Command System (ICS) will be automatically activated.

The CMRO headed by its Executive Director Melanie Briones will also serve as an information and communications center for the business community here during calamities. For more information, you may contact 09173261653 or you may email them at [email protected].
