He said that a firetruck will also be deployed near Vestil Street or close to the SRP’s Mambaling access road guard house for mass participants who may want to wash their feet in case the areas would start to be muddy from sudden downpour.

“We are designating a wash area for mass-goers who may want to wash their feet before going home,” said Tumulak.
