DSWD taps volunteer group for installation of emergency communication lines in Central Visayas

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Field Office VII taps the assistance of the Federation of Volunteers thru Radio Communication (FVRC), an accredited group of the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC), to set up two-way handheld radios to connect the FO’s regional warehouse and its Emergency Operations Center (EOC). The installation of the handheld radios is a reliable way to ensure that communication lines will still be available during the disaster response operations in the region since network signals remain intermittent in Central Visayas. The FVRC also coordinated with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) to install a spare antenna at the DSWD FO VII to connect with the Visayas Disaster Resource Center (VDRC) in Mandaue City, Cebu
