PLANNING AHEAD OF DISASTERS. A City Disaster Risk Reduction Manager (CDRRM) reaches out to post one component of his community’s disaster early action plan during a workshop for the 17th and final leg of “Iba Na Ang Panahon: Science For Safer Communities” (INAP-S4SC) at the Philippine International Convention Center held from May 29-30, 2014. INAP-S4SC was a joint information and education campaign (IEC) by the Department of Science and Technology, Department of the Interior and Local Government, and the Office of Civil Defense. It provided an avenue for local chief executives and CDRRMs to map out plans of mitigating losses during calamities through DOST’s cutting-edge early warning systems. The National Capital Region leg also incorporated business and services continuity plans that will be adopted by cities in the future. The IEC went around the country’s 17 regions during a three-month period to help communities design their disaster communication protocols by incorporating high-tech warning tools.
