They also visited the Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) Action Center in Barangay Potrero, where they learned more about the city's disaster response capabilities. Finally, they visited the Blue Caravan in Fisher Mall, which showcases Malabon's various initiatives on environmental protection and sustainable development.
Overall, the visit served as an opportunity for the Zamboanga officials to gain insights and knowledge from Malabon's best practices in disaster preparedness and sustainable development.
