2017 went off on a rather adventurous start with a heart. As the Country welcomed the first Tropical Depression in it’s Area of Responsibility called Auring. It also marked NMBS’ First foray into Natural Disaster News Coverage led by the efforts of the Bee TV 7 News Team that tirelessly waited and updated the news regarding the Storm Path. With Hourly Live Reports and Storm Updates it showed that despite being Butuan’s Newbie when it comes to terms with being a News Outlet it also rolls with the punches alongside the experienced outlets that braved the storm from Nasipit to Jabonga.
And not only that the company even put together Oplan: TabangKadapig a donation drive supported by many of it’s supporters that was created to aid the displaced families in the low-laying areas of Buhangin, Mahogany, Banza, Maon and Baan Km. 3 that took refuge in the Evacuation Centers in Agusan National High School andFlorencio Sibayan Central Elementary School. The First receiving food packs for both evacuees and rescuers and the Second receiving relief goods that included uncooked rice, canned goods, noodles and bottled water. As an additional stop the Senior Citizens affected from Brgy. Maon also received relief packs that completed this OPLAN that will soon become a knee jerk reaction for all the Natural Disasters that not only the city but also the region will face.
One thing is certain, no storm will wind the Bee’s Heart to Serve.
