Nervous commuters stuck on the safe side of the road became agitated that sometimes they poured out their frustration to the men on the ground who are tired and weary in doing the manual labor of shoveling the debris off the road at the same time coordinating the situation on the ground.
For this, PLT. Bonifacio Fanged - Acting chief of police at Sadanga, Mountain Province, humbly appealed to travelers/commuters not to be angry to the uniformed personnel who are doing their job to secure their safety. Especially that the Sadanga road is notoriously known for unpredictable falling rocks, much more these days after the earthquake and continued rainfall.
He added that he felt emotional after he received a report from his team on the ground where they need to absorb the anger of the travelers for not issuing the "signal to proceed" since the road where the landslide was, is still unsafe for passersby.
PLT. Fanged reiterated that "His men were taught to be courteous despite the pressure of the job and to always look back to their main task which is to serve and protect whenever they are challenged."
He also warned that once a fatal accident happened to travelers, it would be difficult for them to survive as they need to haul chunks of stones and sharp debris scattered on the road aside from landslides, which delay the evacuation just like what happened to the recent accident in Sitio Makotiti.
