 ALAMINOS CITY- The city government through the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (CDRRMO) in partnership with the village officials  and volunteer groups continues to strengthen the barangay-based emergency management and in securing its people in  times of distress and calamities.

Mayor Arthur F. Celeste, through City Administrator Dr. Emielou E. Gellado, and Liga ng mga Barangay President Raul Bacay led the turn-over of rescue cans and life vests last August 7  at Plaza Marcelo Ochave.

The project was in line with the city’s National Disaster Resilience Month celebration.

 CDRRMO Chief Mylene Manalastas said the life-saving equipment and essentials were purchased using the DRRM preparedness funds. He said the remaining 19 barangays that are not susceptible to floods will still be provided with the basic rescue equipment.

 Bacay welcomed this valuable support from the city government through the CDRRMO.

 “Our flood-prone barangays have their water search and rescue teams and barangay disaster response teams, which are being trained regularly. They are equipped with necessary life-saving measures in times of disasters,” Bacay said.

 Bacay also said with the regular skills training provided by the CDRRMO, the newly issued equipment enable the barangay disaster teams to respond better and keep them safer.
