last August 25 U.N.T.V celebrated it’s 11th anniversary and it was held at S.M.X Convention center in Pasay City. As part of the celebration the 2nd U.N.T.v rescue summit was held with the help of some government organizations like the Philippine National Police ( P.N.P ), Metro Manila Development Authority ( M.M.D.A ) and other organizations.
The celebration was led by our one and only “Mr. Public Service” Daniel Razon. the event was very informative and you can gain knowledge especially in the things we need to know about preparation on calamities. There were many booths that giving information about wound management, how to use the fire extinguisher, earthquake simulator and many more. the said event was also the time that kuya Daniel Razon launched the new and improve U.N.T.V rescue team. The U.N.T.V rescue team is more bigger and better because also include the underwater rescue, but the main attraction was the seminars held for calamities preparedness.
The first seminar was about calamities preparedness. Coach Manny was the speaker for the discussion. He discussed the things we need to know to prepare for calamities. Here are some of his tips and a checklist for the family.

All the seminars was very informative but the most interesting and very timely was the seminar of Director Renato Solidum of Phivolcs. The seminar was all about earthquake but the focus of the discussion was West Valley Fault System. In case this fault system move it may cause a 7.2 magnitude earthqueke that will destroy hundreds or thousands of structure that cost million or billion of pesos, but the most scary is the number of lives that may lost in case the big one happen.
