The AAVA Leadership has prepared for the aftermath of typhoon Hagupit and we urge everyone to observe and respect the following process by which AAVA in cooperation with the Barangay Ayala Alabang and with utility firms will tackle all damages that the Village and their residents will incur as a result of this typhoon:
- The AAVA Leaders will conduct a quick assessment of the extent of damages wrecked by typhoon Hagupit on the Village. This will be done in cooperation with the leadership of the Barangay Ayala Alabang.
- Immediately after the assessment, the AAVA leaders will gather at their command center at AAVA Conference room where facilities are ready, including maps, radios, cell phones, personnel etc. BAA will assemble at their command center at the DLSZ.
- The AAVA Leadership Team gives orders to the four (4) responder teams compose of between ten (10) to fifteen (15) personnel complete with chainsaws, bolos and other equipment who are stationed at four strategic areas, namely, a) AAVA office, b) District 2 covered court, c) Cuenca court, d) STP compound, to move and start clearing the main streets on the first hours, namely Madrigal, Acacia, University, Country Club Drive and Cuenca.
- The BAA will take care of clearing the main roads in District 1 as well as watch and guard all breaches on our walls in the whole Village.
- The Meralco and Maynilad Teams put on standby the day before also get activated at AAVA’s order and simultaneously on the first hours, conduct their own survey of the damages in the Village.
- Right after the two utility firms finished their survey, they will start their work immediately with the first couple of hours after the typhoon leaves. The first priority of Meralco is to restore the main lines along the main streets, going into the secondary lines or secondary roads right after they are done with the main lines. Note that they will not attend to any request for repair on any secondary lines until they are done with the primary lines. AAVA for that matter will compile all requests and forward them to Meralco when they are ready to attend to secondary road repairs.
- Maynilad will also do their repair jobs similar to the Meralco system, that is putting priority on main lines then going to secondary lines.
- We urge everyone to post in our AAVAWECARE FACE BOOK all their complaints and requests for services. We will also man our office on regular hours and phones on a 24 hour basis.
- In the same way, we urge everyone to help us restore the Village to normal conditions by volunteering to help us in various tasks like clearing roads and similar activities that will help us put all our roads to normal use as soon as possible.
- The AAVA and the BAA have given the authority that the Meralco and Maynilad repair crew may need to cut tree branches or break and dig on sidewalks to put our power and water supply to normal operating conditions. We appeal to all residents to avoid interfering with Meralco and Maynilad personnel thereby prevent them from doing their work of efficiently restoring power and water in the Village.
We thank all for cooperation.
