Barangay Tanods in Agsur receive protective gears from PGAS

AGUSAN DEL SUR -- The Provincial Government of Agusan del Sur (PGAS) distributed a total of 1,882 protective gears to barangay tanods provincewide to help them perform their duties safe and secure even during bad weather condition. 


Dubbed as Team Eddiebong, the group of provincial officials led by Gov. Santiago Cane Jr., hopped from one municipality to another for three days in order to safely deliver the protective gears to the recipients through their respective local chief executives. 


Each set of the protective gear iincludes a raincoat, reflectorized vest, flashlight, handcuff and whistle. 


“Being trusted to perform as barangay police and at the same time responder during calamities, these barangay tanods work unconditionally even in bad weather. It is just fitted that they are provided with protective gears so  they can also protect themselves from bad weather and most especially from harm if ever they will be attacked by some unscrupulous individuals in the performance of their duty,” Gov. Cane said. 


Led by Gov. Cane, the team was composed of Vice Gov. Samuel Tortor, SP members Avalota Cejes, Joseph Plaza, Gina Ceballos, Edwin Elorde, Cesar Alonde, Allan Lim, Glen Plaza, Edgar Ga and Pablo Plaza.


During the first day of distrribution on February 8, 2023, the team covered the far flung municipalities of La Paz, Loreto Veruela, Sta. Josefa and Trento. On February 9, they were at the municipalities of Sibagat, Esperanza, San Luis Talacogon Prosperidad and the city of Bayugan.  On the last round of the team’s route were the municipalities of Bunawan, Rosario and San Francisco. 


Agusan del Sur has a total of 5,182 barangay tanods and many failed to receive their protective gears. But while the items cost the provincial government some amount of money, Gov. Cane said they will find ways and means so that every barangay tanod will have his own protective gear.  (David M.
