The City Government of Malaybalay through the initiative of Mayor Florencio “Doc Boy” T. Florencio, Jr. along with the support of 2nd District Congressman Atty. John T. Flores conducted a series of trainings slated for junior responders in all 46 barangays that started on November 24, 2021.
One of the trained batches completed the course during the culminating ceremony on December 11, 2021. The event held at the Pelot’s Conference Hall was participated by 71 participants from different barangays namely: Indalasa, Busdi, Caburacanan, Kalasungay, Sumpong and Barangay 7, this City.
Mayor Doc Boy Flores in his message challenged the participants to carry out their duties as recognized responders in their communities. “Apply what you have learned in responding to a situation that allows it and be mindful of your individual responsibilities aimed at saving lives,” he added.
Congressman Flores also expressed that the youth responder’s role in their respective barangay is significant especially disasters/calamities strike when least expected.
The said training was spearheaded by CDRRMO trainers and is expected to commence next year on January 2022.
