The Philippine Coastguard (PCG) is still on heightened alert even after the Holy Week.

According to PO1st Condrito Alvarez Jr. of PCG Caticlan their passenger assistance continues particularly for those who are back for work and are returning home after a vacation in Boracay.

Alvarez added that they are also strictly implementing the wearing of life jackets to passengers along with the reminder to write their names on the manifest.

Earlier, before the Holy Week the coastguard has set passenger assistance centers at ports in Caticlan and Boracay.

While saying that there were no problems encountered in the RoRo trips as of the moment, Alvarez reminds travelers to be careful and follow the rules set by the coastguard.
