In his speech at the Army General Hospital at Fort Bonifacio, where Sec. Honasan led the National Capital Region launching together with Major General Jesus B. Sarsagat, Acting Vice Commander of the Philippine Army, he said,

 “Tuwing may kalamidad, may kaguluhan, may sakuna, ang tinatanong natin palagi ay kung meron bang kuryente. That’s the wrong question. The right question should be, ‘Meron bang contact?’ Para malaman natin kung sino iyong walang kuryente, kung sino iyong nahirapan talaga, kung sino iyong nawash-out iyong tulay. So the most important thing is contact, connectivity.”
