BULAN RESCUE TEAM ASSISTS MAGALLANES LANDSLIDE VICTIMS

Bulan, Sorsogon, May 8, 2009-

As a show of solidarity with the People of Magallanes Town, Bulan Town Mayor dispatched on May 6 & 7, the Bulan Rescue Team headed by Councilor Simmy Gerona to assist the residents of the landslide-ravaged barangays of Magallanes Town.

The team headed by Councilor Gerona also included Team Members Darius Razo & Antonio Amilano. They stayed in Magallanes where they helped and assisted in the transfer, by the use of the Bulan MDCC Rubberboat, of relief goods and people to areas which are in accessible by land transportation.

Magallanes Mayor Abelardo Arambulo immediately conveyed his gratitude to the people of Bulan, through Mayor De Castro’s office.

It can be recalled that the People of Bulan also pooled in their assistance to the People of Albay during the typhoon Reming and Mayon Volcano landslides where thousand were killed years back. Mayor De Castro sent a rescue and retrieval team to the devastated area. Several truckloads of relief goods and clean water were also dispatched by LGU-Bulan with the help of various volunteer groups and the whole community.

Meanwhile, Municipal Administrator Luis G. De Catsro, Jr., PIO Antonio G. Gilana and Ryan Cantre attended in Sorsogon City on May 6-7, a seminar workshop on Disaster Management and Risk Reduction sponsored by the Provincial Government, World Vision and Green Valley Development Foundation. They also trained on Rain Recording as part of the Disaster Preparedness Program of the Municipality.

  1. This is following the commandment to love your neighbor. To love and to help in times of calamities is becoming a trademark now of Bulan municipality. Yes, we have not forgotten the typhoon Reming and the Mayon Volcano landslides and how the people of Bulan helped, and now recently the Magallanes landslides where some people perished. Bulan was there also to help.
    To help is an instinct which is far away from political calculation. Even animals help not only one another but they also help people or save people from troubles.
    Hence, Bulaneños still have this instinct in themselves and that is good, a sign that we are still a healthy people.
