The Olongapo City Disaster Management Office (DMO) was among the first rescue groups in Zambales that helped flood victims in Botolan.

Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. tasked Angelito Layug, head of DMO to send off a rescue group when the 45-meter earth dike in Botolan was breached by the heavy floods brought about by Typhoon Kiko last August 6, 2009.

“The city and its neighboring towns and provinces can always count on our help in times of emergencies,” Layug said referring to the times that DMO also assisted other areas in the country, even as far as Benguet.

According to Zambales officials, damages to infrastructure brought by Typhoon Kiko has reached P100 million and, at least P1.2 million lost in crops and livestock.
