Launched early this year, the enhanced version of the Operation Listo Manual contains actions the local governments must do in preparation for typhoons.

DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año said the “Operation L!STO Disaster Preparedness Manual’’ volume 3 includes a preparedness guide for governors.

The previous edition of the manual only focused on the preparedness checklist of city and municipal mayors, DILG field officers, chiefs of police of the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the Bureau of Fire Protection.

“The manual is a step-by-step guide for local execs during typhoons and all that they have to do is execute the detailed preparedness and critical actions specified in the document.

If they fail to carry out such actions, they may face disciplinary actions from the DILG,” he added. (Chito Chavez)
