The Office of Civil Defense Regional Office 1, in partnership with the Provincial Government of La Union, held a Fun Run named: “Run for Resilience” in celebration of National Disaster Resilience Month. The kick-off ceremony was held last July 1, 2023, at the Poro Point Baywalk. A total of 176 individuals from various RDRRMC1 member agencies and other stakeholders participated in the aforementioned activity.
The Poro Point Freeport Zone used to house the former Wallace Air Station. The enactment of Republic Act 7227 (Bases Conversion and Development Act) on March 19, 1992 and Proclamation No. 216 on July 27, 1993 effectively transferred the stewardship of the Freeport to the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) to facilitate its conversion into a productive economic growth center.
