With its 48-man contingent composed of Meralco linemen and engineers and One Meralco Foundation (OMF) volunteers, these team members were included in the Power Restoration Rapid Deployment (PRRD)-Task Force 2020, which closely coordinates with the Department of Energy (DOE), National Electrification Administration (NEA), Philippine Rural Electric Cooperatives Association Inc. (Philreca), and the Electric Cooperatives in Catanduanes.
