Ensuring continued connection

In a statement, one of the country’s major telcos said it is ready to roll out its Libreng Tawag, Libreng Charging, and Libreng WiFi services as part of its comprehensive disaster readiness initiative.

Globe’s technical and support teams are also on standby to ensure continued operations, with generators ready at strategic facilities to ensure uninterrupted network services.

All these are complemented by Globe’s free data access to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) and the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) websites, so as to keep everyone updated with verified information on the volcanoes’ recent activity, the telco noted.

Globe is also reminding affected residents to store supplies of essentials, and emergency kits, as well as to make sure their mobile devices are always fully charged.

Currently, Mayon is under Alert Level 3 due to "an increased tendency towards hazardous eruption."

Phovolcs urged residents within the 6-km radius Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ) to evacuate.

Taal, meanwhile, is under Alert Level 1 as authorities have reported voluminous steam-rich plumes rising to 3,000 meters above the island.

Although its alert level remains at 1, there has been a marked increase in sulfur dioxide emissions, and residents near Taal Lake are encouraged to stay updated and vigilant.

As developments continue to unfold, Globe remains steadfast in its commitment to support affected communities and collaborate with government agencies. The company pledges to continue disseminating critical updates and advisories to ensure the public is informed and safe, Globe said.
