Subic girds for Southeast Asian Games

By Malou Dungog and Ernie Esconde, Central Luzon Bureau

SUBIC BAY FREEPORT: The Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority is leaving nothing to chance in the coming 23rd Southeast Asian Games. It is readying to provide medical services and coordinating security measures with outlying towns of Hermosa and Dinalupihan.

Four SEAG events—archery, triathlon, sailing and kayaking—will be held at the Subic Bay Freeport from November 9 to December 6.

SBMA administrator Armand Arreza on Friday signed the agreement with Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee president Jose Cojuangco Jr. in which Philsoc shall pay for the medical services and will orient SBMA emergency personnel on medical guidelines.

Arreza said the SBMA would also provide diagnostic procedures, like x-rays and laboratory tests that may be requested by the Philsoc medical committee or team physicians of foreign delegations.

Meanwhile, at a courtesy call, SBMA chair Feliciano Salonga, Arezza and retired Gen. Jose Calimlim, deputy administrator for operations, asked Mayor Efren Cruz Jr. of Hermosa and Mayor Joel Payumo of Dinalupihan to enforce security and traffic programs during the SEAG.

Dinalupihan and Hermosa are along the entry points to the sprawling Subic ecozone where athletes, delegates and sports enthusiasts are expected to converge during the Games.
