ESSD conducts DRMM and Climate Change Seminar
The Office of Civil Defense, in partnership with DepEd Region 4A-CALABARZON Education Support Services Division conducted the Disaster Risk Reduction and Management and Climate Change Adaptation seminar attended by 60 participants from the 19 divisions of Region IV-A CALABARZON last March 3- 4, 2016 at NEAP Malvar, Batangas. Each division delegation was composed of the SGOD Chief and 2 DRMM Division Focal Persons. The activity reminded the participants about the crucial role of DRMM Focal Persons in terms of coordination with DepEd and LGUs.
Likewise, representatives from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAG-ASA) presented modules: the first module discussed the proper orientation on how participants gather information to be able to inform the public on typhoon signal; the second was on how to disseminate information coming from the Emergency Operation Center, nationally down to the local levels.
Basic Life Support (BLS) and First Aid were also discussed by LGU-Laguna and ended with the Discussion on Fire Safety by the Bureau of Fire Protection.
