SHYA and team visit PLA Hong Kong Garrison Exhibition Center (with photos)


     The Secretary for Home and Youth Affairs, Miss Alice Mak; the Permanent Secretary for Home and Youth Affairs, Ms Shirley Lam; the Under Secretary for Home and Youth Affairs, Mr Clarence Leung, and a team from the Home and Youth Affairs Bureau (HYAB) today (July 11) visited the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Hong Kong Garrison Exhibition Center at Ngong Shuen Chau Barracks to have a further understanding of the remarkable achievements of the country and the Communist Party of China, as well as the glorious history of the PLA and the contribution made by the PLA Hong Kong Garrison to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).
     Miss Mak and the team toured an exhibition themed “Dreams of the East”. They looked at historical photos, antiques and models of the PLA’s military equipment installed at the main hall, three thematic exhibition halls, namely “the Chinese Dream”, “the Dream of a Strong Military” and “the PRC HK Garrison”, and the weaponry and equipment area.
     Miss Mak thanked the Hong Kong Garrison for inviting her and the team to visit the exhibition. Miss Mak said that since its opening in July 2021, the Exhibition Center has attracted many young visitors who acquired a correct understanding of national affairs through the interesting and informative exhibition. The exhibition centre has contributed to the HKSAR Government’s effort in nurturing a new generation of young people with an affection for the country and Hong Kong.
     As a symbol of national sovereignty, the Hong Kong Garrison has performed defence functions and responsibilities in Hong Kong and provided staunch support for maintaining the long-term prosperity and stability of the HKSAR. The Hong Kong Garrison is also a core part of the Hong Kong community.

Garrison™ Flood Control Launches New E-Commerce Site for Purchasing Commercial Grade Flood Barriers

 Garrison™ Flood Control, an industry leading provider of unique flood barriers and water diversion products, launches a new online e-commerce platform to sell its line of flood control products.

“We wanted people to be able to easily and quickly shop and purchase commercial grade flood control, but at pricing accessible to homeowners and smaller municipalities as well,” said Arnon Rosan, President of Garrison Flood Control. “We had initially offered our products only through our sales team, but realized that there was an online market, even for large quantities of our higher end, industrial quality, water diversion products,” he added.

Garrison Flood offers its Mayim™ interlocking barriers for flood control and water diversion, Serpent™ inflatable flood berms for heavy duty flood protection, Beluga™ oversized concertina style sandbags for cofferdams, berms and dike construction, Guppy™ water filled tubes to create water dams and to divert water, and Minnow™ SAP filled sandbags for doorway protection and to create quick dams. The company also offers standard empty sandbags for communities to have on hand for flood emergencies.

All of Garrisons flood control products meet stringent technical standards and have been proven in the field. Each product serves a specific and unique flood scenario, meaning that the company can offer a complete range of flood protection for a typical office building, home, municipal building and for entire communities.

“We’ve expanded our online informational content to allow even engineers to take a deeper dive into our flood barrier products and get comfortable with ordering products online,” said Mr. Rosan. “From 10ft of flood protection for a garage door, to thousands of feet of protection for storm surges and river flooding, our customers can now order flood barriers online and expect delivery of their order quickly,” he added.

“Of course, we are still always available to talk through unique scenarios, provide additional technical information about our flood barriers and to consult on an individual’s flood control needs,” said Mr. Rosan. “The new garrisonflood.com ecommerce site is not meant to replace that personal touch that we have become known for, but rather to meet the additional needs of customers shopping at all hours of the day,” he added.

Garrison™ Flood Control is a New York-based manufacturer, distributor, and renter of a complete line of flood control products. Garrison products contain, divert, and re-route water away from valuable property, equipment, infrastructure, and facilities and help prevent flood damage due to rising water levels.
