The Emergency Rescue Unit Foundation (ERUF) is celebrating its silver anniversary. Since 1986, ERUF has responded to over 12,000 alarms and emergency calls in Cebu. It is Metro Cebu‘s version of rescue 911. From a rag tag group of paramedics and rescue workers in 1986, the organization has transformed itself into world-class unit capable of serving many different emergencies. In 25 years, ERUF has grown from less than 60 members to over 300 members that includes Full-time paramedics, volunteers, operational personnel, communication personnel and medical doctors. The motto of the group is ” We serve so that others may live” and they have been doing that to Cebu and other nearby areas like Ormoc for 25 years.
During ERUF’s 25th anniversary Awards and Recognition night, there was a runway show featuring the fashion of ERUF starting from 1986. Here is a slideshow on what the members wore from 1986 to 2011.
