To further strengthen disaster preparedness and mitigation, the City Government installed Automated Weather Stations (AWS) at the CDRRMO Command Center and 4 strategic barangays, namely: Uling, Jaguimit, Cantao-an, and Balirong.

The AWS provides real-time weather monitoring updates that enables the CDRRMO to promptly take the necessary course of action especially during severe weather disturbances such as heavy rains and typhoons.

CDRRMO personnel and representatives from host barangays underwent an orientation and familiarization exercise to operate the stations.

The City Government is also set to install 8 Public Address Warning Devices in strategic locations in the city.
