MANILA, Philippines?The Philippine National Police Maritime Group has identified flood-prone areas in Metro Manila where its disaster response units will be concentrated as typhoon season nears, an official said on Monday.

Superintendent Oliver Tanseco, operations chief of the PNP Maritime Group, told reporters that these flood-prone areas are in the Camanava (Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, and Valenzuela) area and the city of Marikina.

Tanseco said the PNP has already deployed its equipment such as rubber boats into these areas in anticipation of possible disasters.

At the same time, the PNP has already trained almost all of its Maritime personnel not only on rescue but also on first aid and equipment handling, Tanseco said.

?Our deployment plan was already pre-determined so the experiences in ?Ondoy? last year will not happen again,? he told reporters.
