Grab partners with PNP on holiday season road safety program
MANILA, Philippines — Ride-hailing firm Grab Philippines has partnered with the Philippine National Police – Highway Patrol Group (PNP-HPG) on Christmas season road safety efforts and initiatives.
Grab and PNP-HPG officials signed at Camp Crame in Quezon City on Thursday a deed of donation and turn-over of professional first aid kits and high-quality car jumpers, to be used by the police for troubleshooting any type of vehicle that may malfunction along major roads during the holiday rush.
“With these initiatives through our enduring partnership with the PNP-HPG, we aim to use our technology and partnership for good to keep our thoroughfares safe, less vulnerable, and accident-free this holidays,” Brian Cu, Grab Philippines president, said in a statement.
Cu added that Grab has also started a series of first aid training sessions for 100 HPG officers, which he said is part of the company’s efforts to help equip those on the road with skills to handle accidents and emergencies.
Aside from first aid training, Cu said Grab also provided training for HPG personnel on troubleshooting motor vehicle engine problems.
He said the training will enable the police to help respond to automotive issues that may cause traffic jams or possibly harm passengers on the road.
“With these two training programs, we are more confident that our police, especially the Highway Patrol Group, are well-equipped to address any untoward incidents on the road this holiday season,” said Cu.
