Amid the recent rains that caused floods and landslides, officials of local governments in Quezon province underwent training on disaster preparedness
The Department of the Interior and Local Government IV-A led the training-orientation on the Disaster Preparedness Manual for Localized Weather Disturbances, the Quezon provincial government said on Facebook.
DILG field officers and LGU officials were briefed about local weather disturbances and the dangers they bring to people, livelihood and infrastructure, it said.
The speakers at the event stressed the importance of early warning systems and preparedness in preventing casualties.
“Sa maagang paghahanda, gabay ng lokal na pamahalaan, at pakikiisa ng mga mamamayan mailalayo sa panganib ang buhay ng ating mga kababayan. Lagi tayong maging alerto nang manatiling ligtas at malayo sa panganib ang kapwa natin tao,” the Quezon provincial government said.
