In a significant move to enhance public safety and emergency response capabilities, the City of Taguig, under the leadership of Mayor Lani Cayetano, handed over a fleet of essential vehicles for search and rescue operations. The turnover ceremony took place on Thursday, June 20, at the TLC Park Open Ground Parking Lot, Laguna Lake Highway (C6 Road), Brgy. Lower Bicutan.

The newly acquired vehicles include three fire trucks, one state-of-the-art rescue truck, seven fully-equipped ambulances, and eight fire patrol motorcycles.

These vehicles were turned over to the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) Taguig and the City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (CDRRMO).

Each vehicle is furnished with the latest tools and equipment necessary for first aid and rescue operations, ensuring the city's preparedness for various emergencies.

The vehicles and equipment are equipped with advanced search and rescue tools, including personal protective equipment (PPE), self-contained breathing apparatus, two-way radios, and SAR hardware such as hydraulic cutters, spreaders, rams, and jacks.

Rev. Fr. Roberto Carlos Ocol blessed the vehicles during the ceremony, offering prayers for the safety and protection of both the equipment and the personnel who will operate them.

Mayor Lani Cayetano highlighted the importance of these new additions to the city's emergency response fleet. “Bilang mga opisyal ng bayan, pangunahin po sa aming tungkulin ang masiguro ang agarang pagtugon sa mga sakuna at mga kalamidad sapagkat nakapaloob po ito doon sa ating Transformative, Lively, and Caring agenda as a city,” she said.

The new fleet is expected to significantly enhance the city's ability to respond swiftly and effectively to emergencies, aligning with Taguig's commitment to public safety and disaster preparedness.
