The Palawan Provincial Board (PB) has approved a measure requesting the municipal tourism offices (MTOs) to install warning signages in waterfall sites considered as tourist destinations to avoid accidents.
In a resolution authored by Board Member Cherry Pie Acosta, she said some waterfalls are located in areas that are dangerous, but tourists still want to experience the adventure.
The best thing to protect their welfare is by putting up warning signages so they can plan their travels well.
Acosta said warning signages must be printed legibly and visibly, and must also be written in both Filipino and English.
It should be placed in conspicuous areas of the attraction sites, she added.
“Residents and visitors should exercise extreme caution when they visit some locations. Accidents can still occur in some tourists spots due to lack of warning signages that can inform them about what risks they might encounter,” Acosta’s resolution said.
This is aimed at ensuring safety and avoid accidents, the official said.
