Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) - Globe is ready to extend assistance to residents in Eastern Visayas, Bicol Region, Caraga, and other areas affected by Typhoon Bising as part of its disaster preparedness campaign.

The company is also assuring the public that its technical and support personnel are on call, while standby generators are ready for its facilities.

In a bulletin issued 11 a.m. Saturday, PAGASA said 'Bising' has maximum sustained winds of up to 185 kilometers per hour near the center and gustiness of up to 230 kph.

The weather disturbance is seen to intensify and reach its peak intensity between 195 and 205 kph on Sunday, the state weather bureau added.

Globe's Libreng Tawag, Charging, and WiFi services will be deployed to areas where the typhoon is seen to bring heavy rains and strong winds.

It is also providing free data access to the website of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) for Globe and TM customers to remind affected Filipinos to always be prepared and make sure to tune in to legitimate news sites and updates from authorities.

Affected residents are also advised to store enough food and water, prepare flashlights with extra batteries, candles, first aid kits, and fully charge their phones.

SMS alerts from NDRRMC will be also sent for reminders and warnings.
