Makati City Mayor Abby Binay has ordered the deployment of disaster response vehicles and equipment to Bauan, Batangas to help residents displaced by Taal Volcano’s unrest.

Binay said the city government deployed Sunday, January 19, one super tanker, two fire trucks, a water filtration system, mobile showers, vacuum tankers, generator sets, mobile kitchens and jerry cans.

The team from Makati will also send 1,000 sleeping mats that Binay purchased for the evacuees.

Binay said the deployment of disaster response vehicles and equipment will go a long way in making evacuees more comfortable while they remain in evacuation centers.

The super tanker has a water storage capacity equivalent to that of eight fire trucks. The water will pass through a filtration system to make it potable.

Meannwhile, Makati’s mobile kitchen has the capacity for preparing 800 meals or more.
