CITY OF MALOLOS- The Bulacan Rescue of the Provincial Government of Bulacan once again proved its exemplary performance in the field of search and rescue as it was conferred the Best Local Government Emergency Management and Response Team during the 21st Gawad KALASAG Regional Awards held at the Fontana Paeonia Hall, ASEAN Convention, Clark Freeport Zone, Pampanga last Friday.

Governor Daniel R. Fernando congratulated and thanked the Provincial Disaster and Risk Reduction and Management Office headed by Felicisima Mungcal and its staff for their undying efforts to help and rescue the Bulakenyos in need.

“Ipagpatuloy pa po natin at lalo nating pagsumikapan na maitaguyod ang pangangailangan ng ating mga kababayan. Pagbutihin pa natin at mas doblehin pa sapagkat di natin alam kung anong mangyayari sa mga susunod na panahon. Anuman ang dumating, isipin natin na nandiyan ang Panginoon. Magkaisa tayo sapagkat sa pagtutulungan at pagkakaisa, naroon ang tagumpay,” the governor said.
Prior to this recognition, Bulacan was awarded the Regional Gawad KALASAG Hall of Fame Award for being the Best Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC) from 2010 to 2012; and the National Gawad KALASAG Hall of Fame Award for being the Best PDRRMC from 2012 to 2014.

Also, the Bulacan Rescue together with other rescue groups in Bulacan was one of the first to respond on the helicopter crash carrying Laus Group of Companies President and CEO Liberato Laus and the collapsed of Chuzon Supermarket in Porac, Pampanga.

Gawad KALASAG is the country’s premier recognition scheme to various stakeholders that design and implement Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) programs that protect and shield high risk communities against hazards and render them more capable of addressing their vulnerabilities and coping from disasters.
