The announcement was made during his speech at the post Valentine’s dinner and recognition of the top 100 businesses and top 100 taxpayers in this first class town led by his elder sister, second termer mayor Maria Angela “Gila” Garcia.

“In a few days or a few weeks’ time, tayo na po yung pangalawang may 911 emergency hotline sa buong Pilipinas. Kapag naayos nap o ng PLDT, pwede na po sa cellphone or sa landline pag tinatagan nyo po ang 911 mako-connect ang tawag nyo sa 1Bataan Command Center,” the governor reiterated.

SBMA (Subic Bay Freeport) also has its 911 emergency hotline but it was activated only for landline calls.

1Bataan Command Center located in the town of Orani is now being considered as the most modern command center in the country according to Governor Garcia.

Garcia also announced that in the coming months, he will increase the number of patrol cars of the Metro Bataan Development Authority (MBDA), led by its general manager Carlos “Charlie” Pizarro, Jr., along the Roman Highway, also called the Bataan Provincial Expressway.

“Siguro po sa lahat ng probinsiya sa Pilipinas, dito lang po sa Roman Highway natin may pinakamarami o may patrol cars ng police at MBDA patrol personnel for every kilometer ng atin pong national highway,” Garcia proudly announced.

The whole stretch of the 62 kilometer Roman Highway is equipped with close circuit television cameras or CCTV.
