To make emergency response resources available to its host communities, renewable energy solutions provider SN Aboitiz Power Magat (SNAP-Magat) has partnered with Sta. Lucia's barangay local government unit (BLGU) in Bagabag, Nueva Vizcaya for these tough times.
A memorandum of agreement (MOA) was signed for the purchase of a Barangay Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (BDRRMC) vehicle, led by Ed Bundalian, SNAP-Magat Plant Manager, and Barangay Captain Villamor Suni on August 4.
The vehicle will transport BDRRMC personnel to respond to emergency situations such as calamities and COVID-19 related preventive actions, said Suni.
"This will also be used to respond to other medical services that are critical to the well-being of the people of Sta. Lucia. The project will benefit approximately 3,000 individuals from our barangay,” Suni added.
The signing took place at the Magat Dam crest, an open-air space overlooking the Magat reservoir in Brgy. Gen. Aguinaldo, Ramon, Isabela.
The project is a joint effort between the BLGU, which provided funds from their budget, and SNAP-Magat, which donated around P538,000 as COVID-19 response through its ER 1-94 program under the Department of Energy (DOE) and the company's regular CSR fund.
