In a statement by the Office of Civil Defense, Lorenzana urged Faeldon “to bring new insights that would contribute to OCD’s development as the country’s lead Disaster Risk Reduction and Management agency.”

Faeldon is currently detained at the Senate after he refused to attend the hearings on the smuggling of P6.4 B worth of shabu from China. He earlier quit as Customs chief after being tagged in the scandal.
