Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC) Chairman Governor Edcel Greco A.B. Lagman and the Albay Public Safety and Emergency Management Office (APSEMO) have issued a public advisory regarding the anticipated effects of the two-day nationwide transport strike starting tomorrow, Monday, until Tuesday, 2024.

According to PDRRMC-APSEMO advisory no. 3-2024, asynchronous classes or distance learning will continue for primary and secondary schools under the Department of Education (DepEd).

Face-to-face classes, on the other hand, are suspended at all levels in private schools, including college, from April 15-16, 2024.

Schools implementing asynchronous classes or modified learning modalities may proceed with their classes, depending on their school heads’ discretion.

Meanwhile, there is no suspension of work for employees, whether in private or public offices, or any business establishment.

In connection with this, personnel from the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), Philippine National Police (PNP), and the Provincial Engineering Office (PEO) under the Albay PDRRMC are required to report to APSEMO to assist in providing free rides to affected and stranded passengers.

The public is also advised to refrain from leaving their homes due to the shortage of available transportation.

Additionally, all City and Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Offices (C/MDRRMOs) are advised to be vigilant and closely monitor the status of the strike, ensuring that there is a standby response team and ambulance available if needed.
