The governor Rutilio Escandón Cadenas headed the installation of the State Council of Civil Protection, where he emphasized that the actions in that area, as in security, require the best results for the welfare of the population of all the municipalities of the state.
He acknowledged the effort and support for Chiapas from the president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and called for the greater coordination and collaboration of all the institutions to be more efficient, because not only is it necessary to have a presence, but also to meet the priority needs of the people throughout the territory.

From now on, added Governor Rutilio Escandón, inter-institutional coordination is elementary and fundamental, since results depend on it and society is attentive to the call when it comes to helping to solve different social events.
"Each one must provide solutions and we have to help each other, which implies having a lot of information and communication, but also knowledge to be able to help people; for that reason in the Secretariat of Civil Protection Luis Manuel García Moreno continues to lead, because we need experience and preparation, not improvisation, "he said.
