Cessna 340A IMT leads operational debriefing activity

The Incident Management Team (IMT) of Cessna 340A led an operational debriefing activity at Hotel Venezia, Legazpi City, on Friday, March 10.

The activity was conducted to further improve response to emergency operations and to discuss things that could be improved using the experience in the recent search, rescue and retrieval operation of the CESSNA plane crash in Camalig, Albay.

Tim Florece, Public Information Officer (PIO) of the local government of Camalig, shared the insights that they have discussed during the activity.

“From the insights po, ma-draft ki manual of operations na focus sa air incident response,” Tim said in an interview with Bicol.PH.

When asked if who will collate the manuals, Camalig Mayor Carlos Baldo Jr., the former incident commander said that they will coordinate with Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines in regards with the matter.

“Actually, sinisimulan na namin, and then we will coordinate sa CAAP para kung sakaling may mga incident na ganito may susundan na mga protocol and policy para – hindi man natin hinihiling na mangyari ulit, may mabubuklit tayo na mga protocols,” Baldo said.

The said activity was attended by the members of; IMT, Energy Development Corporation (EDC), Civil Aviation Authority (CAAP), the search, rescue, and retrieval operations team, and other members of the operation and they’ve shared their tactics in the conducted operation.

Meanwhile, Baldo added that the remaining parts of the Cessna plane will still remain in the crash site until the alert level status of Mayon Volcano is lifted.

“Nag-request si CAAP na kung pwede kunin, pero sabi ko dae na muna ta nasa alert level 2. Pero kung walang alert siguro, pwedeng kuhaon, pero alert level 2 wara kita humanitarian reason na kuhaon ini, kumbaga ang eroplano pwedeng palitan su buhay nung tawo, dae pwedeng palitan,” Baldo said. | Mayet Marcayda & Aaron John Baluis
