TACLOBAN CITY – The Yolanda Resilience exhibit at Robinsons Place Tacloban, which began on November 4 and will run until November 9, 2022, continues to bring interest to the importance of being prepared for natural disasters.

Led by the Office of Civil Defense (OCD), Tacloban City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (CDRRMO), TACRU (Tacloban City Rescue Unit), Borongan CDRRMO, Department Of Information And Communications Technology (DICT), Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), and the Philippine Army participated in an interactive exhibit showcasing modern tools and equipment used in disaster response.

The exhibition highlights the advancements in disaster response over the years. DICT displayed its cutting-edge technology, such as ad hoc, a portable satellite that enables devices to send messages despite having poor to no connectivity.

CDDRMO and TACRU showed off their tools, which included hydraulics and cutters made of high-quality materials. The Philippine Army brought in one of their rescue boats so that people could ride it and get their pictures taken. They also brought in photos of the aftermath of Yolanda.

The BFP, meanwhile, has a mock rescue set up and told Tacloban CIO with pride that it is capable of an underwater rescue. On November 9, the last day of the show, rescue techniques like rappelling and CPR will be shown by agencies that are taking part. —iTacloban (with reports from CIO)
