Posted on by in with 22 Comments

In light of the recent events in North Cotabato, Lanao del Norte and Maasim, Sarangani Province, GenSan City Mayor Pedro Acharon, Jr. called on an expanded Tri-Council Security Meeting yesterday (August 20th) afternoon at the Sydney Hotel.

In attendance were the city’s movers and shakers, business leaders, school heads, heads of government offices, leaders of the city’s indigenous tribes, military and police officials, members of the religious community and the media, among others.

PNP City Director PSSupt Robert Po, new Joint Task Force GenSan Cmdr. Col Leo Ferrer, Coast Guard Station Cmdr. Lt. Col. Charlie Rances and Naval Task Force Cmdr. Lt. Col. Raul Regis took turns in assuring the attendees on the city’s security preparedness in these times of uncertainty and briefing them on the real peace and order situation prevailing in the region.

Mayor Acharon, for his part asked the public to remain calm and vigilant while discouraging them to forward unverified text messages which only contribute to the panic situation in the city.  He then proceeded to distribute an additional 20 handheld radio sets to the GenSan police donated by the Tuna Festival Council and the GSC Chamber of Commerce and Industy.

The mayor also released the EMERGENCY HOTLINE Numbers to call for any eventuality:

    it is imperative that our police, arm forces and the people of gensan be very vigilant in these troubled time … do not let our guards down … civilian must cooperate when passing thru check points since it is for their own good.

    let us not show mercy to these milf bastards dogs and eliminate them once and for all !

    Sana sama din nila nos. ng mga hospitals, Red Cross and Philippine Chinese Chamber of Commerce Fire Brigade d2 Gensan.
    By the way, for us citizens, cleaning up and installing lights(at least 10watts)on our personal sorrounding areas will help coz minsan pag masukal or marumi at madilim ay madali ito gawin taguan ng mga criminal elements or pwede magtanim ng BOMBA!
    Also, kopya natin mga Hotline numbers to a piece of paper and paste it near our landline phones and also, SAVE these nos. on our respective celphones.
    P.S. Just make sure may load ang hi tech phones mo. Ehe he.

    addendum:

    just wondering… i heard that the emergency number that you dial in the mobile phone is “112″… if you dial this, who would pick-up?

    (this may be a dumb question… please feel free to reply if you know the answer… this may come in handy…)

    let’s continue to pray for peace in mindanao…

    God bless us all… :)

    victim din ako nung text msgs na yun! Wala man gid mi alamag while nga klase mi sa skul. Although naa mi balita na gubot daw ang mindanao or red alert, we did not seriously mind it. Peaceful naman ang paligid. Not until my father called me. Though I wasn’t able to answer (meh klase), he texted later, nangangamusta sa Gensan. Red Alert daw. Uwi na daw ako. Tas I reasoned, I can’t. Meh klase pah. Eh nung bumaba na ako nung break time, mga friends ko nagpapanic na, gusto naring umuwi. Nakisabay nlng din ako. They were saying gyera na lagi.

    I really don’t know how to regulate these false textmessages. Sabi pa ng media (and government)wag seryosohin. Eh panu kung yung mga relatives tsaka mga friends mo na rin mismo ang nagtext sayo? XD Forwarded messages sound fishy, kaya we don’t really mind them. Pero panu kung yung text, ang sabi ay ganito: “Nak, uwi kayo agad ha, delikado (blah blah blah)” tas maya-maya mag tetext: “Nak, binombahan baya ang Fishport … (blah blah blah)” tas sabayan pa ng mga paranoid mung classmates na mag-eexaggerate ng mga bali-balita (may nahostage sa Apopong!) at (cancelled man classes ng ibang schools kasi gyera, bat tayo, may pasok?)…. Sinong di mapaparanoid nyan? Sabayan pa ng mga dumadaang ambulansya. XDDD Tapos, OA lang pala ang lahat-lahat.

    Enjoy life to the fullest. Wag magpadala sa ibang tao. Dapat may tracing system ang govt sa mga texts na yan para mapoint out sino ang gumagawa ng mga walang kwentang texts na yan.

    Kung panahon mo na mamatay, panahon mo na..Its that easy.

    pwede ba e-centralize ang hotline ng pnp at jtfg… tulad ba ng 999 ng US?
    Maalala ko noon, mayrong routine na ginagawa ang mga militar na naglalakad sila sa kalye in group tapos 24/7. Bumaba ang crime rate and walang mga batang tun-og na gumagala sa kalye. Baka pwede gawin nila uli yun. (kung di sila tinatamad! HEHEHE)

    the moral of the story? wag agad napapaniwala sa mga text messages. kung napanood nyo sa tv si COL. ROBERT PO, chief of police natin, wag nang ipasa ang mga LINTIK

    the moral of the story: wag ipasa ang mga lintik na text messages na yan. kung gusto nyong makatulong, ipasa ang message kasama ng number ng nag-text sa inyo sa mismong cellphone number ng CHIEF OF POLICE, si COL. ROBERT PO. hetong number nya: 09209140896

    itigil na yang maling impormasyon via text messaging.

    ipasa ang mga messages kasama ng cell phone number ng nagpasa sa inyo directly kay COL. PO – tingnan lang natin kung di tumigil ang mga hayop na yan.

    hmp. hindi ako galit. nanggagalaiti lang.

    pati ang kapamilyang ABS CBN lumabas ang tunay na kulay – di daw tutuloy artista nila dahil takot tapos sa DAVAO tutuloy???? the nerve! boykot natin ang ABS CBN. PAG MASAGANA ANG GENSAN, SALI SILA. PAG GIPIT, GUDBAY SILA? ANO SILA, SINESWERTE?

    boykot abs cbn!!!!

    Rhomer, i agree with you that we should not let our guards down. But I also believe that it takes two to tango… kaya on the road to peace, both parties should also sit down again.

    Ang may desisyon to cancel the concert here in Gensan for the tunafest of gerald anderson, kim chiu and john lloyd cruz is the ABS-CBN TALENT CENTER. Walang magawa ang local gensan office nila. Haay na lang…. super unfair talga.

    Thanks Orman for correcting… 911 nga pala ang sa US… dito kasi sa amin 999… and I find it very effective.

    Request ko lang kay Col. Robert Po, pakitutukan naman ang mga naglipanang mga batang Tun-og jan sa Gensan, malaking perwesyo na sila sa ating lungsod.

    The best thing to do is to have city residence id at least to know who lives in & visitor of Gensan. Akala ko may Camera na nakapalibot within the city so that to monitor the flow & identify something wrong. Any exit point of Gensan to put up the Gate and verify the id. I know its impossible but terrorist teach us to be more vigilant & come up to ideas on how to protect our constituents…Kung pwede lng sanan ma monitor kung nasaan ang pamilya nila then kung may bomba well bombahin din family nila at least for them to feel how to lost their loveones…
