The Union of Local Authorities of the Philippines (ULAP) said on Thursday, Oct. 21 , hat the first day implementation of the Alert Level System in several provinces went on smoothly.

ULAP national president and Quirino Gov. Dakila Cua attributed it to the through discussion on expansion of the Alert Level System outside the National Capital Region (NCR) with various local government units (LGUs).

In an interview over ABS-CBN, Cua said he had already requested the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) to conduct a webinar on how to implement the Alert Level System that prepared us for its enforcement.

“In my own experience, okay naman. Kasi, to be honest, matagal naman na itong pinag-uusapan. Noong nagpa-pilot pa lang ang NCR ng alert level system, binabanggit na nga na eventually, lahat (all areas) pupunta doon (It was okay. Because, to be honest, we had discussed this a long time ago. When the Alert Level system was under pilot testing in NCR, it was mentioned that all areas will eventually be under this),’’ Cua said.

Previously, Marinduque Gov. Presbitero Velasco Jr., president of the League of Provinces of the Philippines (LPP) revealed the sudden implementation of the Alert Level System outside Metro Manila prompting him to ask the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) to defer its implementation to Nov. 1.

From Oct. 20 to 31 the following alert levels are effective in the following areas:

Alert Level 4 – Negros Oriental, Davao Occidental

Alert Level 3 – Cavite, Laguna, Rizal, Siquijor, Davao City, Davao del Norte

Alert Level 2 – Batangas, Quezon province, Lucena City, Bohol, Cebu City, Lapu-Lapu City, Mandaue City, Cebu province, Davao de Oro, Davao del Sur, Davao Oriental. (Chito A. Chavez)
