Key national leaders have been invited to emphasize the importance of Security and provide expert knowledge at PROTECT 2011: Defense Secretary Voltaire T. Gazmin, National Security Adviser Cesar P. Garcia Jr. and Secretary of Transportation and Communications (DTC) Jose P. de Jesus.

The Department of Transportation and Communications (DTC) is the partner agency of PROTECT 2011, now on its sixth year.

With its role as builder and promoter of critical infrastructures, the DTC strengthens the government-private sector preparedness for disaster through networking and sustaining awareness for updated means for disaster preparedness.
