Puspusan ang paghahanda ng Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) sa nalalapit na inagurasyon ni President-elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.
Kaninang umaga, ika-22 ng Hunyo 2022, inihanda ng PCG ang ilan sa mga floating assets at security groups na i-de-deploy sa ika-30 ng Hunyo 2022 para tumulong sa pagpapanatili ng kaligtasan, seguridad, at kapayapaan kasabay ng panunumpa ni President-elect Marcos sa Maynila.
Ayon kay PCG Commandant, CG Admiral Artemio M Abu, asahan ng publiko ang mahigpit na pagpapatrolya ng tatlong multi-role response vessels (MRRVs) at humigit-kumulang 10 pang PCG floating assets sa katubigan ng Manila Bay at Pasig River, gayundin ang pagbabantay ng mga PCG land vehicles sa daloy ng trapiko sa mga kalsadang malapit sa National Museum kung saan magaganap ang inagurasyon.
The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) collaborated with the Philippine National Police (PNP) to train 82 students of PNP-Special Action Force (SAF) on sea vessel assault onboard BRP Teresa Magbanua (MRRV-9701) in the vicinity waters off Port Area, Manila from 20 to 22 June 2022.
To ensure their efficiency in carrying out the PNP - SAF mandate, the concerned students undergoing specialization in Urban Counter-Revolutionary Warfare Course (UCRWC) Class 103-2022 performed a series of training on ship assault scenarios to simulate boarding and securing of vessel bridge and engine room.
According to PCG Special Operations Force (CGSOF) Commander, CG Commodore Edgardo Hernando, the said initiative established closer ties and strengthened interoperability of special operations forces of PCG and PNP, specifically in conducting skills enhancement training and operations.
The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) will deploy assets and personnel on the inauguration of President-elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr in Manila on 30 June 2022.
According to PCG Commandant, CG Admiral Artemio M Abu, the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) tapped the PCG to support the implementation of measures to uphold public safety and security on the first day of the Marcos administration.
“We will deploy assets and personnel to augment the Task Group Maritime Security – NCR-Central Luzon that is in charge of ensuring maritime security and maritime safety during the inauguration of the newly-elected Chief Executive of the Philippines,” CG Admiral Abu said.
