Require security plans in buildings

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/10 November) — All public installations should have a
physical security and a bomb incident plan, an official from the military’s
explosives unit said Friday. Read full story here.
But it isn’t an alarmist pitch, said Capt. Ramon Torres, commanding officer of
the 6th Explosives Ordinance Disposal Detachment Unit. “We are only trying to
increase the awareness of the public on these explosives,” he said in a press
conference here.
Torres said threats of bombing incidents would be a reality that people in
some parts of Mindanao have to bear within at least five to 10 years. “That is
why there is a need to educate the public about bombs or improvised explosive
devices (IEDs),” he said.
In a Powerpoint presentation, Torres showed to reporters bombs and IEDs, their
appearance, where people can expect to find them, its hazards to people and
property and the public’s possible Do’s and Don’t’ when they find one.
