New anti-terror equipment
MANILA, March 5 (PIA) — With two new utility boats and now, new anti-terror equipment, the Philippine Coast Guard sees a stronger maritime security.
Philippine Coast Guard chief Vice Admiral Edmund C. Tan said the new anti-terror equipment composed of bullet proof vests, vest carrier, plates, ballistic helmets and visors will be used by the PCG’s Special Operations Group-Anti Terrorist Unit.
“The new protective gears will add safety measures to the protocols set by the PCG in performing life-threatening tasks like vessel boarding, security inspections, and explosive ordnance disposal,” said Tan.
