    Our Fire and Rescue Team was among the few teams that were accredited by the Manila International Airport Authority to be a part of the “Crash and Rescue Exercise (CREX)” conducted last year.

    Our Emergency Rescue Ambulance was able to transport several patients coming from various villages and sitios to various hospitals in the metropolis free of charge.

    Ms. Marezel Chavez, our Barangay Treasurer, whose task is to ensure that our barangay budget has been used and spent in accordance with the existing government accounting and auditing procedures.

    These are the people behind our success in the barangay. Without them, we cannot achieve these significant accomplishments for our constituents.

    We also thank the various homeowners associations for their continued support in various projects, programs and activities being undertaken by our barangay in their respective area, our purok chairmen in various sitios and puroks and other officers of our barangay such as the members of the Lupong Tagapamayapa.

    We will continue to count on your support in the implementation of our Barangay Action Plan for this calendar year particularly on the maintenance of peace and order, health and safety, cleanliness and beautification, livelihood programs, the general welfare of the senior citizens, disabled persons and destitute families, the protection of women and children from any sort of abuses.

    We are also happy and proud to say that our barangay is being considered as one of the model barangays in our city.

    For my last, I am appealing to each and everyone to continue the camaraderie and harmonious working relationship we have established in our community in the past years, to continue the good team work, to continue serving our community as one family with one noble goal in mind…”tuloy-tuloy ang trabaho…tuloy-tuloy ang serbisyo”.

    Marami pong salamat at mabuhay po kayong lahat!

  • Mayday...Mayday!

    On July 6, 2007, a delayed flight, CREX-07, a passenger plane carrying 100 passengers and crew takes off at Manila International Airport's Runway 24 at exactly 9:54 A.M. bound to Laoag International Airport. Three minutes later at several thousand feet altitude, Manila Control Tower (MCT) initiates a communication for a hand-off on flight CREX-07. But before effecting MCT hand-off to Radar, the said aircraft suddenly develops an emergency of unknown cause, forcing the pilot to maneuver. Thereafter, the pilot relays messages of aircraft-in-distress and requests MCT for an emergency return flight. Seconds later, MCT loses communications with the aircraft.

    At this point, MCT supervisor alerts MIAA Rescue and Firefighting Service with the information at hand, alerts all ACRO members and other concerned agencies in the Support Group for a probable downed aircraft. Fire, Medical and Police Services proceed immediately to a presumed location somewhere in the vicinity of Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard along Manila Bay Area using grid map for an accurate route leading to the incident site.

    (Just click the picture to enlarge it)





    The location of the ill-fated aircraft was finally found by the responding fire and rescue teams.





    Among those who responded to the crash site were members of the Barangay Merville Fire and Rescue Team led by Nestor P. Mose and Froilan L. Montecillo, Team Leader and Assistant Team Leader, respectively.





    Barangay Merville Fire and Rescue Team with other fire-fighting units led by MIAA Fire and Rescue Team race against time to save the lives of the plane's passengers and crew as well as those residents near the vicinity hit by the downed aircraft.





    The capability of Barangay Merville Fire Fighting Unit during times of disasters such as this has been proven once more being one of the major responding units in this incident.





    Barangay Merville Emergency Rescue (Rescue 309) Unit is also seen rushing to the crash site.





    Rescue 309 First Responders Bobby Mapa and Eduardo Barba prepare the crash victims to be transported by Rescue 309 ambulance to the nearby hospital.





    MIAA Medical teams led by Dr. Rillo including those from various agencies, organizations and hospitals rush to the aid of victims seen scattered around the crash site.





    Rescue 309 Ambulance has been able to transport crash victims from the crash site to the nearby hospitals up to six (6) round trips.





    Rescue Team from the Philippine Air Force aboard a helicopter arrives at the scene to transport seriously wounded victims.





    Unfortunately, one rescue helicopter developed engine trouble that forced M/Gen. Angel Atutubo, MIAA Assistant General Manager for Security and Emergency Services and Incident Command Post Commander (wearing orange vest jacket) to ground the said aircraft pending the arrival of aircraft mechanics he called thru the MCT.

  • Plane Crash in Merville

    (NOTE: This is a real and actual air tragedy that happened in Barangay Merville. THIS IS NOT A DRILL!)

    On April 19, 2007, on or about 10: 45 A.M., a single engine Cessna plane crashed along the vacant lot of Burgos Compound, New York Street, Merville Park, Parañaque City, Metro Manila.

    Based on the account of the witnesses, the pilot (who was the lone fatality) managed to avoid the heavily populated area of the subdivision and nearby mission areas, thus, preventing extensive damages to the lives and properties of the residents. For doing so, the pilot was hailed as a hero by residents within the neighborhood.

    Once again, the capability of Barangay Merville Fire & Rescue Team was put to test. They were the first to arrive at the scene of the crash before the rescue team from Manila International Airport Authority arrived. Although, they were not able to save the life of the pilot whose body was already charred at that time, they have prevented the possible spread of chemical fire within the neighborhood.

    The following are some photos taken during the said plane crash. Just click the picture to enlarge it.

    SPECIAL PROJECTS OF THE PUNONG BARANGAY

    FIRE & EMERGENCY RESCUE

    Barangay Merville is one of the only two barangays in the City of Parañaque that pioneered the emergency rescue services in the barangay since 1992.

    It's emergency rescue team has been known in the entire city as "RESCUE 309". The Rescue 309 started using an "Anfra" vehicle which is shorter than the regular ambulance vehicle.

    Barangay Merville managed to secure a brand new L-300 Ambulance thru the efforts of former Senator Ernesto Maceda. Its second ambulance, a Vesta vehicle was obtained thru the courtesy of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO), it was called Rescue 711.

    Rescue 309 and Rescue 711 have been serving not only Barangay Merville constituents but as well as those from other barangays in the city and adjacent areas. Both vehicles are equipped with basic life support equipment.
