THE Army's 53rd Infantry Battalion (IB) has installed solar-powered flood lights to boost security, especially at night, at the militia patrol base in Midsalip, Zamboanga del Sur.

Lieutenant Colonel Jo-ar Herrera, 53IB commander, said the flood lights will serve as perimeter lights of the patrol base in Balonia village, Midsalip to provide clear area visibility from a distance to see anyone moving in or around the outpost.

Herrera said the solar flood lights also provide the ability to light even the most remote locations for safety and security.

"These solar flood lights can be installed in just about any location with no need for access to traditional power," he said.

The flood lights will not only provide safety and security for the patrol base and its Cafgu Active Auxiliaries (CAAs) but will also deter crime against property and people in the surrounding areas.

The flood lights were donated by Zamboanga del Sur Governor Victor Yu. (SunStar Zamboanga)
