Andanar: 24-hour hotline to launch in August
Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar in his interview in Inquirer said that they were launching the 24 hour hotline this coming August.
“We’re launching it this August, the 8888 plus the 911,” Andanar said.
President Rodrigo Duterte already mentioned it in his first cabinet meeting. He said he will put a hotline directly to his office and report any complaint or corruption. The calls will be handle by 10 operators.
“l am setting up a complaint office, 24 hours, manned by 10 operators, covering the entire country. The number will be 8888. They can report to me any complaint and there will be a manager who will redirect the complaint to the proper office,”Duterte said in his cabinet meeting.
According to Andanar, the emergency hotline number would be replaced from 117 to 911. Just like in Davao City emergency hotline.
“The 117 now should be beefed up to become 911,” he said.
