Army reservists and Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) cadets under the 14th Regional Community Defense Group (14RCDG) of the Reserve Command, Philippine Army assist in the hauling of aid for victims of the magnitude-7 earthquake that shook Northern Luzon on July 27, 2022.

Reservists and ROTC cadets helped the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Cordillera Administrative Region in hauling essential supplies that will be distributed to quake victims in the quake-stricken villages in Abra, the epicenter of the destructive quake that damaged government buildings, roads, houses and heritage structures in Northern Luzon.

Army units in Northern Luzon augmented their standby forces amid strong aftershocks. The 5th and 7th Infantry Divisions likewise deployed disaster response units to assist residents and clear key landslide-hit roads in the Ilocos Region, Cagayan Valley and Cordillera.

Army Commanding General Lt. Gen. Romeo S. Brawner, Jr., has vowed to prioritize the development of the Army’s reserve force that serves as force multipliers in times of calamities and other national emergencies. — PA
