“Our main objective is to lessen and prevent the possible risks which affect our society and environment,” Mayor Santiago added.
The Mayor of San Fernando also discussed how San Fernando was able to handle calamities and disasters caused by typhoons and heavy rains.
“We have a local version of 911 and that’s 961-HELP,” Mayor EdSa said as he promotes the City’s own rescue team and emergency medical services hotline.
In recognition of the City’s disaster response and mitigation efforts, the San Fernando Rescue Unit (SAFRU) placed 2nd in the “Best in Government Emergency Response Management (GEM) Basic Search and Rescue” Award for 2013. The City was also awarded second in City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (Independent and Component City Category).
