PIA-SMART launches Infoboard program in CV PIA-SMART launches Infoboard program in CV

CEBU CITY, Marso 2 (PIA) -- Cell phones with SMART as service provider will soon receive disaster alerts and weather bulletin including important advisories and information after SMART and the Philippine Information Agency (PIA-7) in Central Visayas launched the Smart Infoboard program at the PIA-7 conference room, Machay building at Gorordo Ave., in Cebu City yesterday (March 1).

Some 30 information officers from Cebu, Bohol and NegOr that are members of the Regional Association of Development Information Officers (RADIO-7) including those of the national and local government agencies attended the Smart-PIA Infoboard launching. 

PIA-7 regional director Minerva Newman said the Infoboard is a tool where cell phone subscribers that are registered for the services can receive free information from government daily. 

In a way, the messages that government used to send through personal cell phones can now be sent via a central number assigned by SMART and only those subscribers that allow the text messages on their cellphones can receive these information.

The PIA links with SMART Communications for sending/texting important information on the weather, disaster risk reduction managment and prevention and all other vital information that the public needs to know immediately. 

According to the briefing by SMART officials, a cell phone user that allows the SMS/Text information are subscribed to the program through the PIA.
With this, text scams and text scares are prevented because the SMS and messages that are sent thru the Infoboard have specific assigned numbers.(Rey Anthony Chiu/PIA-Bohol)
