The Philippine Army’s 544th Engineer Construction Battalion (544ECB) of the 52nd Engineer Brigade dispatched Disaster Response Operation (DRO) and Construction Teams to the impacted areas of Surigao del Norte on December 20, 2021.

Due to fallen trees, debris, and electricity poles along the national route, the 544ECB sent one DRO Team to Placer, Surigao del Norte, to supply heavy equipment and labor to support road cleaning activities.

One construction team was sent to Surigao del Norte and Surigao City to transport relief supplies and provide engineering support and assistance to the displaced families.

Philippine Army units across the country are continuing their efforts to assist families affected by the recent Typhoon Odette, particularly during the holiday season.
