History of Barangay Talidtid
Barangay Talidtid got its name from the Bikol word taludtod which is a way of carrying something on your back (in English, “piggy-backing”)
Barangay Talidtid is bounded on the east by barangay San Roque, west by barangay Sta. Cruz and south by barangay Casuray of the Municipality of Magarao. It has an aggregate area of 152.7074 has. or 3.5% of the total land area of the municipality. It is made up of seven puroks .
Educational, Health and Service Facilities
Immediate need for health services in the barangay is undertaken by 4 Barangay Health Workers and supplemented by twice a month visitation by the Municipal Midwife. The residents can also access the services of the Municipal Health Office located in the town proper situated 1 km from the barangay. Serious cases can be brought directly to Naga City which is about 6.5 kilometers from the barangay.
Barangay Talidtid has no elementary school. However, public elementary school can be accessed in the poblacion and at barangay Fundado, a nearby barangay. The nearest High School is the Sta. Cruz high school located at barangay Sta Cruz, a neighboring barangay.
Tertiary Education facilities can be found in Barangay Baras (about 3 kms. from the barangay) and Naga City (about 6.5 kms from the barangay).
A Day Care Worker (funded by the barangay with municipal counterpart) undertakes day care services to the children aged 3-5 years old.
Mode of Public Transportation
The entire 7 puroks of the barangay is traversed by a concrete barangay road serviced by around “padyaks” (minimum fare is P5/person) and tricycles that ply the route of Poblacion-Talidtid or Poblacion-San Roque and a single motorcycle called “habal-habal”. Given the road condition and the proximity of the barangay to the town proper (poblacion) public transportation for barangay Talidtid is accessible, which are usually available as early as 4 a.m. and as late as 8pm.
The barangay is served by several credit institutions (private and government) including those offered by private individuals. TSPI and CARD Bank, are the more prominent private lending institutions in the barangay. The Municipal Government also offers micro-lending services to identified sectors, including the micro entrepreneurs and farmers. Private individuals (5-6 or bumbay type) and compradors also offer credit services to individuals in the barangay.
Water & Electric Supply
Almost all of the people in the barangay get their drinking water from water lorry that ply the area for a fee (at P6 per 16 liter container). Others who can afford buy from water purifying stations that deliver water to their doorsteps at P35 per 16-liter container. This situation is amplified by the CBMS results which revealed that 94.9% or 168 of the total 177 households in the barangay have no access to safe water.
As to electricity, all the seven puroks of the barangay has electrical facilities through CASURECO II. However, there are still several households with no electrical connections due to economic reasons.
The barangay has no Materials Recovery Facility and no established waste management system. Most of the residents dispose their wastes thru burning or in open pits. It can be mentioned that the barangay is reached by roving “Bote-Bakal-Plastic” buyers.
Peace and Order
The barangay is generally peaceful. Peace and order in the barangay is handled by the Barangay Tanods with regular detail duties and foot patrol every night. CBMS 2009 data shows that 4 households said that they were victimized by crime against property.
