The PN’s Naval Combat Engineering Brigade have been deployed in Langka St., Provident Village and Brgy. Bliss, all in Marikina City since yesterday, November 11 to aid in the ongoing rescue operations for trapped families due to heavy flooding triggered by the “Ondoy like” Typhoon Ulysses.

Elements of 101st PN Reserve also trooped to Barangka in Marikina early morning today, November 12 to augment PN DRRTs.

The PN’s brand new amphibious assault vehicles (AAV) of the Philippine Marine Corps (PMC) were put to prompt deployment to Rodriguez, Rizal to help in rescue operations in communities affected by Typhoon Ulysses.

“Three AAVs are now heading to Rodriguez, Rizal for rescue operations. Each AAV can load 15-20 passengers and can travel 300 miles with a speed of 13 km/hr in water,” the Marines said.

The AAVs are among the modern assets of the PN intended for marine operations but can also be utilized during disaster response operations because of their capability to traverse both land and water.

The Philippine Navy has always been in the forefront of disaster response operations along with other government agencies. Its assets, personnel and reservists are fully utilized with an aim to minimize the loss of life and properties during calamities.
