The 1st Technical & Administrative Services Brigade (Reserve), known officially as First TAS, is one of seven TAS units of the Technical Services Reserve Group of the AFP Reserve Command, and is based in Quezon City. The unit provides combat support and service support services to AFP Reserve Force Maneuver Units operating within the National Capital Region particularly Army Reserve Units of the 15th Infantry Division (Ready Reserve) of the Army Reserve Command, the 1st Air Force Wing (Ready Reserve) of the Air Reserve Command, and reserve units of the Naval Reserve Center - National Capital Region of the Naval Reserve Command.
Being a technical unit means the unit must rely on force protection assistance from maneuver units within its AOR and that it provides engineering, medical, legal, and religious services required by these AFP Reserve Force Maneuver Units.
