Congressman Robert Ace Barbers donated 10 units of Collapsible Modular Evacuation Tents last May 4, 2021 at Tagana-an Municipal Hall. In his behalf, the former Governor Robert Lyndon Barbers doled out the modular tents to the LGU with the presence of the Municipal Mayor Hon. Cesar B. Diaz, Jr., Vice Mayor Hon. Cesar A. Diaz, Sangguniang Bayan Member Hon. Vicente S. Beberino Jr. and the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Officer Mrs. Rosemarie S. Buico.
Each tent measures 1.5 x 1.5 meters which can accommodate five to seven persons. It is made of polyester and has open-roof and zippered door cover.
Mayor Cesar B. Diaz, Jr. is grateful for the gesture of Hon. Robert Ace Barbers considering that Tagana-an is prone to natural disasters such as typhoons, earthquakes, landslides, and floods. Hence, those residents in low-lying areas can now be provided with temporary shelter during emergency situations.
