The Barangay Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Committees and community representatives of Barangay Anoring and Barangay Poblacion Ilawod attended the LDRRM Pulong-pulong 2022 held at Multi-purpose Gyms of Brgy. Anoring and Brgy. Poblacion Ilawod last July 5 & 7, respectively.
Speakers in the activity were Honorable Mayor Jon Aying; Edwin Aguenido, MDRRMO; Hernando Suerte, MDRRMO Training Officer; Mayolito de Castro, of the Municipal Command Post; SFO3 Terzo Obera and FO2 Cyril Vestoso of Sara Fire Station.
These activities are part of MDRRMO’s Community-based Disaster Awareness Programs to emphasize the importance of disaster preparedness and to enable the target communities to implement DRRM in a more organized and systematic manner. Specifically, the LDRRM Pulong-pulong aims to:
1. Enhance collaboration between the MDRRMO and BDRRMCs for a more organized and systematic implementation of DRRM plans and programs;
2. Promote the culture of self-help and self-empowerment by developing the capacities of BDRRMCs towards reducing the adverse impacts of disasters and climate change through skills development, technical support, policies and trainings.
3. Serve as a venue to discuss the issues, concerns, and challenges relative to the crafting and completion of BDRRM Plans.
