The Philippine Army’s 31st Infantry Battalion (31IB), 9th Infantry Division cleared the widespread ashfall dumped by Mt. Bulusan’s eruption in Barangay Puting Sapa, Juban, Sorgoson on June 6, 2022.

The Philippine Army, together with barangay officials and villagefolk, cleared the ashfall a day after the volcano’s phreatic eruption.

Alert Level 1 remains hoisted over Bulusan, according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.

Army Commanding General Lt. Gen. Romeo S. Brawner, Jr., said humanitarian assistance and disaster response missions are part of the Army’s sworn mandate to serve the people and secure the land.

“Rest assured, your Philippine Army is always ready for any contingencies. Troops are ready to help our kababayans in communities near the volcano,” the Army Chief said. — PA
