CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, July 18 — The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) has implemented the necessary preparations and precautions to minimize the impact of Tropical Storm “Isang” on NGCP operations and facilities, the NGCP said on Wednesday.

In a press statement, the NGCP said that preparations included ensuring the reliability of communications equipment, availability of hardware materials and supplies necessary for the repair of damages to facilities, as well as the positioning of line crews in strategic areas, to facilitate immediate restoration work.

NGCP’s Integrated Disaster Action Plan (IDAP) prescribes these and other procedures to ensure the readiness of all power transmission facilities expected to be affected by the passage of the weather disturbance, it said.

Typhoon Storm “Isang” is expected to make landfall over Palanan, Isabela by evening.

The NGCP’s Overall Disaster Command Center monitors all power restoration activities, reports, and updates from the Regional Command Centers in North Luzon, South Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, whichever is directly affected by the weather disturbance. (PNA)
