The Fariñas siblings worked with members of the Philippine Coast Guard to conduct rescue operations at the La Paz Fish Port in the wake of Severe Tropical Storm Maring.
Ilocos Norte 1st District Representative Ria Fariñas said on Tuesday, October 12, that she and her siblings joined the rescue efforts after receiving a distress call from a resident trapped by the flood at the port.
It was Rey Carlos Fariñas, village chief of Barangay 16 San Jacinto, Laoag City, who led the operations along with the Coast Guard. They were also joined by Ria Fariñas, Provincial Board Member Rodolfo Christian “Junior” Fariñas III, and Probinsyano Ako Representative Rudys Caesar “Baby Boy” Fariñas I.
“On going search & rescue iti mesa nga ubing nga nalmes idtoy La Paz Fish Port headed by Kap Carlos Fariñas ken iti kameng iti Coast Guard,” said Ria Fariñas in her Facebook post.
The Fariñas siblings, public service is a family affair.
