ILIGAN CITY, July 2 (PIA) — The turnover of high-end, version 2 Rosenbauer Fire truck from the National Fire Training Institute to Iligan City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (ICDRRMO) highlighted the launching of the National Disaster Resilience Month (NDRM) in Iligan City on July 2, 2018 at Anahaw Amphitheater.
The city celebrated NDRM with the theme, “Katatagan sa Kalamidad ay makakamtan kapag Sapat ang Kaalaman sa Kahandaan.”
Iligan City Fire marshall Butch Baulete led the demonstration of the fire fighting capability and apparatus of Rosenbauer Fire truck with 2 rapid hose on both sides.
It also has 4,500 extinguishing medium capacity, BFP said.
Brgy. Tubod captain Diosdado L. Cabahug Jr. was also present as his barangay substation received the fire truck.
The substation’s personnel also performed the demonstration scenario.
Baulete also revealed that 911 has already been activated along with the local numbers, 160 and 161.
If there are emergencies, they may dial the numbers through landlines or mobile phones.
Patrick S. Nuñez, the ICDRRMO Head, led the motorcade early in the morning and also gave a message during the program.
As he also presented in the Region X Office of Civil Defense last week, he said that the council is run in terms of response.
For the record, it has 1,332 responses, of which top three are motor and vehicular accidents.
He also presented their plans with the current plight of the bamboo raft from Sitio Wago to Brgy. Bonbonon.
Its requests are with coordination between City Engineers Office and Department of Public Works and Highways.
Nuñez also acknowledged the big role of barangay councils as frontliners to any man-made or natural disasters.
ICDRRMO will have its inventory of community responders, water search and rescue activities, and fire drills in all the 44 barangays as part of its activities for NDRM.
“We will go below the purok president,” he said.
The council’s plan is to have a responder in one household who has knowledge on first aid and basic life support. (PIA-LDN)
