Mountain Province Governor Bonifacio Lacwasan Jr on November 15 lauded the Igorot linemen who journeyed to typhoon-stricken Catanduanes to help restore electricity in the province.
Three linemen from the Mountain Province Electric Cooperative (MOPRECO) joined other linemen from the region in the mission.
The group has been dubbed as “Warriors of Light.”
Lacwasan called on residents to pray for the Igorot linemen.
“As we try to recover from the damages caused by the onslaught of the latest typhoons, the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC) enjoins everyone to always spend a moment of prayer for our gallant women and men who continue to be at the forefront to keep us safe not just from the COVID-19, but also from the effects of calamities,” he said.
