BORACAY ISLAND, Aklan –Business establishments in this tourist island are urged to step up their security measures following the recent incident in one big resort in Manila and due to the ongoing conflict in Marawi City in Mindanao.
Senior Supt. Jomil John Trio, commander of Civil Security Unit 6, said on Tuesday that “guards of hotels and resorts here should be equipped to respond in times of emergencies.”
This is part of the recommendations during the recent security summit held in Boracay last Saturday, according to Trio.
He said the summit, attended by more than 200 security managers of hotel/resorts, banks, airport, seaports, shopping malls, owners/operation managers of different security agencies and even hotel owners aimed to enhance and strengthen the existing security plans of different establishments here and to encourage them to work together with authorities.
“We encourage businesses here to work together with the police and other government agencies to prevent any security threat in Boracay,” he stressed.
Trio said business establishments here were also encouraged to enhance the training for their security guards to ensure the safety of their guests and for them to be able to respond efficiently.
He said the security summit was the first to be organized in the region in response to the incident in Resorts World Manila in Pasay City last June 2.
“We don’t want the same incident to happen here,” he noted. (Karen V. Bermejo/PNA)
