Port Cops, Guards Cleaned Up Seaside ‘Baywatch’ through Fatigue Duty 

SURIGAO CITY, Surigao del Norte -- Operatives of the Port Management Office (PMO), Surigao’s Port Police Division and volunteer security guards recently cleaned up a seaside facility after it was badly damaged by  Super Typhoon Odette.

Scores of assorted debris washed up from the sea and deposited to the beach as well as fallen, scattered trees were painstakingly cleaned up and gathered for proper disposal to  restore the facility to its former glory through the collective efforts of the Port Police Division on ‘fatigue duty.'

Fondly referred to as ‘Baywatch,’ the facility is a coastal training center and recreation area located near the Lipata Ferry Terminal. It was built and developed in the 1990s as a training center/exercise area for Port cops and guards, as well as a recreation venue for PMO employees. 

“With the help of PMO Surigao Acting Port Manager Froilan Caturla, who is instrumental in establishing this facility, the Port Police Division considers it as a valuable legacy and commits to restore ‘Baywatch’ to its former glory,” Acting PMO Surigao Port Police Division Manager Elvis Daguman said.
