Passion and commitment
This is what inspires the members of the Boracay Tourist Assistance Center (BTAC) amid the difficulties they are undergoing with their facilities.
It was learned that BTAC’s electric supply is sometimes cut off during heavy downpours as rainwater would drip into the cables.
This in turn affects their use of computers, particularly the encoding of blotter reports.
The water is also seeping through the station’s second floor because of a poor pipeline installation, while people going in at BTAC has no choice but to use their dysfunctional comfort room.
In line with this, according to Boracay PNP Chief Police Senior Inspector Joefer Cabural, they have already asked for assistance from the higher headquarters in order for the said problem to be fixed.
Cabural however stressed that this is not an obstacle in delivering an appropriate service for the people in Boracay.
Their passion and commitment he said are what pushes them to be of duty wholeheartedly.
For the meantime, the BTAC is doing all that it can for their operation to go on smoothly, while waiting for their request for assistance to be granted.
