Cebu City Hall is ready to send a team to northern Luzon to assist areas hit by supertyphoon Lawin.

Nagiel Banacia, Cebu City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (CCDRRMO) chief, said they signified their intent to assist affected areas to the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council.

“We put ourselves on high alert in case there is a need for reinforcement or assistance in northern Luzon. They were hit by typhoon Karen and now super typhoon Lawin,” he said.

Banacia said the city will also ask for help from other sectors like the Emergency Rescue Unit Foundation (ERUF) as well as doctors in case they will be deployed.

Bañacia said they will just wait for the assessment on what type of assistance may be needed in the affected areas. The city also readied their equipment which can be of use during calamities like typhoons.
