TUBOD, Lanao del Norte – The Provincial Government of Lanao del Norte, through the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMO), in partnership with the Provincial Community Affairs Office (PCAO) and the Offices of the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction & Management, started giving refresher courses to the members of the Emergency Response Unit 143 (ERU) of this province.
A total of 195 barangays will undergo the refresher training, which started last August 1, 2022. Some barangays in SND are also currently undergoing ERU training for their new volunteer recruits.
ERU 143 was founded in order for the Provincial Government to react quickly and efficiently when an emergency or disaster occurs. These pieces of training are important for them to take action in an accident or any incidents that may need immediate medical treatment or handle situations before professional medical personnel could respond.
