Did you know that at least 20 typhoons visit the Philippines each year? Not to mention the 23 active volcanoes in our country and many more natural and man-made disasters we have faced through our lifetime, how safe do you think you are?
"There's no harm in hoping for the best as long as you're prepared for the worst"
I work in a National Government Agency that provides assistance in capability building and information dissemination to raise the awareness of communities about Disaster Preparedness. Part of our job is to make people more disaster resilient, well-informed and well-trained.
Examples? Sure I could give you some.
IEC materials - stands for INFORMATION, EDUCATION AND COMMUNICATION materials that are reproduced for dissemination/posting.
Next time you see these kinds of posters, please take time to read because this MIGHT SAVE YOUR LIFE.
Trainings - We train people, we facilitate training of trainers, and we conduct drills because...Practice makes perfect!
With the cooperation of some International Organizations, nations share their best practices through a dialogue.
To provide quality service to our clients-the citizens of the Philippines, we attend numerous seminars, workshops, and trainings and try to learn everything.
Always remember: SAFETY is EVERYONE's RESPONSIBILITY.
