Mati City Mayor Michelle N. Rabat has turned over nearly P200,000 worth of equipment to the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG)-Davao Oriental.
Among those donated by the local government of Mati City were medical kit, life jackets, megaphones, search lights, diesel generator, and a desktop computer.
Rabat made the ceremonial turnover of the equipment amounting to P197,850 Thursday, November 25 to PCG Mati commander Lt. Junior Grade Elmar Mesina.
In December last year, the local government also donated night vision binoculars, portable GPS, searchlights, lifebuoy can, megaphones, and heavy-duty flashlights to the PCG.
Rabat said the PCG based in Mati has been a reliable partner of the local government in continuing fight against illegal fishers in the bays of Pujada, Balete, and Mayo, thus, the LGU’s support.
