/ 10:03 AM October 29, 2013

The Visayan Electric Company sent two emergency crews to Loon, Bohol last Oct. 22 to help Bohol Electric Cooperative Inc. 1 (Boheco 1) restore electricity in the area.

Various towns in Bohol had no power after a 7.2-magnitude quake rocked Bohol on Oct. 15 at past 8 a.m.

Veco chief operating officer Sebastian Lacson called up Boheco 1 general manager Dino Roxas to offer them help in restoring electricity.

“We understand how vital electricity is and so we need to help one another by providing more manpower, equipment and vehicles,” said Lacson.

Electricity was restored with five power transformers along the town’s major road repaired.
