Bacolod City – The Department of Education (DepEd) Negros Occidental Division, in partnership with the Provincial Government of Negros Occidental, has recently started finalizing their plans by convening a meeting with the various technical working committees. DepEd Schools Division of Negros Occidental Superintendent Anthony Liobet spearheaded the meeting, where traffic management, safety and security, medical and rescue response plans were discussed, among many others. Provincial Sports Coordinator Anthony Carlo Agustin attended the meeting on behalf of Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson, while Councilor Al Victor Espino represented the Bacolod City government.

In his opening message, Agustin stressed his hopes that all the members of the technical working committees will be able to work together to ensure the successful execution of the provincial and regional meets. Espino, on the other hand, signified the support of the Bacolod City government in co-hosting the sports events.

It was also revealed in the meeting that Gov. Lacson had approved the activation of the Incident Command System (ICS) to centralize the communications when it comes to on-scene, all-risk incident management. ICS is a standardized concept to command, control, and coordinate emergency responses by adopting an integrated organizational system to deal with the demands and complexities of single or multiple incidents without being hampered by bureaucratic boundaries.

The Provincial Meet will run from April 1 to 6, with the theme “Nurturing Champions for the World.”
