HHSG Personnel undergoes WASAR

    An average of 20 typhoons and dangerous storms arrive in the Philippines from the Pacific Ocean over the eastern coastline yearly. The Philippines has been the unfortunate recipient of flooding from typhoons in recent years. In August, typhoon Ompong hit the Philippines. This was one of the distractive typhoons this year that affected most areas of Northern Luzon like Baguio City.

    ­With the need to response and save life, Headquarters and Headquarters Support Group, PA sent twenty-seven (27) men team from its sub-units to Army Reserve Command, Tanza, Cavite to train them for the Water Search and Rescue (WASAR) training.
