The local government of Manaoag in Pangasinan is now finalizing plans as it anticipates a huge volume of tourists during this year’s Holy Week observance.
In an interview, Manaoag Mayor Jeremy Agerico Rosario said that they are closely coordinating with the provincial government and local agencies to assist in providing security and emergency efforts.
“We have volunteer force multipliers who are there to help us as well as government agencies such as the Philippine National Police, Philippine Army, and Bureau of Fire Protection, among others who will augment our security force,” he said.
Rosario said he will issue an executive order for the implementation of a truck ban on Holy Week.
“We will be requesting our neighboring towns to [await] the issuance of the truck ban. This is to prevent big trucks, especially at the town proper to ease traffic congestion,” he cited.
