National Disaster Consciousness Month

posted Sep 5, 2015, 1:31 AM by Barangay Tortugas
Barangay Tortugas is one of the most active Barangays in the city of Balanga in regards to preparedness as first responders during emergencies and natural calamities.

Our Barangay is fortunate to be given trainings and workshops as first responders and we are proud to have achieved Third (3) Runner-Up in the overall category of the First Central Luzon Barangay Fire Olympics. We also came Third (3) in the Fire Extinguishment event, considering this was the first time that our fire brigade volunteers have ever joined a competition.

In the celebration of this National Disaster Consciousness Month, our Barangay joined the Tools and Rescue Equipment Exhibit in the City Plaza, Balanga City where we showcased our tools and rescue gadgets to the public. Also on display were various equipment from the suppliers in Manila. In time, we would like to purchase these emergency/disaster accouterments.
