Caticlan Coastguard Commander Terence Alsosa is disappointed with those who violate the Marina Memorandum Circular.
In an interview Tuesday, Alsosa said many hard headed passengers seem not to care when cautioned to wear life jackets. He added that while the Memorandum Circular is strictly implemented, many passengers choose to ignore it.
The Coastguard Commander further added that there will be more strict implementation of the Memorandum Circular especially that it’s the southwest Moonson Season.
According to Alsosa, the wearing of life jacket is for the safety of passengers, therefore it would be best for passengers to follow.
The Memorandum Circular refers to the mandate that all passengers of boats with Open Deck House are required to wear a life jacket.
