Yucot is new OCD director in Bicol
LEGAZPI CITY – The Office of Civil Defense (OCD) in Bicol has welcomed Claudio Yucot, the former commanding general of the Philippine Army’s 901st Infantry Brigade (IB) in Albay, as its new regional director.
Yucot, who hails from Pili town in Camarines Sur, said on Monday that his appointment was signed by President Rodrigo Duterte on September 27, 2017.
“I’m very honored to serve Bicol region again. This is payback time since the Bicolanos have been good to me,” he said.
Yucot replaced Eugene Cabrera of OCD Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, Palawan (Mimaropa), who acted as officer-in-charge of OCD Bicol for two months.
Aside from being the commanding officer of 901st IB in Daraga town, Yucot also served as Director of Army Personnel Management Center of Philippine Army at Fort Bonifacio in Metro Manila. /kga
