Pulong donates communication equipment to Brgy. Catalunan Pequeño
First Congressional District Communication and Information Office
DAVAO CITY – First Congressional District Representative Paolo Duterte on Thursday, October 8, donates a set of communication equipment to Barangay Catalunan Pequeño, Talomo District, of this city.
Barangay representatives received one base radio with power supply and antenna which will be used in response to calamities in their areas of responsibility.
Rep. Duterte sent the equipment following a request letter from Barangay Councilor Jhun Duray, chairman of the Barangay Disaster Risk Reduction Management Center (BDRRMC) and Peace and Order in Catalunan Pequeño.
Duray said in his letter to the young congressman that the communication equipment would help strengthen the operation of the BDRMMC and the Barangay Peace and Order, especially that it has been consistently raining recently.
Though the barangay has handheld radios, Duray said they could not use these units because of the absence of the base radio needed for these equipments to be fully utilized during emergency response.
