Disaster-prone municipalities receive emergency supplies from DWSD 2

Tuguegarao City (1 February) -- Some 60 identified disaster prone municipalities in Region 2 were given emergency supplies and paraphernalia from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), in preparation to any calamity that may strike Region 2.

Regional Director Arnel B. Garcia said the municipalities identified as disaster risk areas were given tents, kitchen utensils, blanket, mosquito net, sleeping bags, used clothes, food packs, flashlights, polyester tanks and other gadgets that are essential during disasters.

The municipalities which were selected as beneficiaries are those that are prone to flooding during typhoons and heavy rains, such as those who were heavily affected during the recent typhoon "Pepeng".

Garcia said the items came from their central office as one measure in preparing for any form of disaster in the community, while the sleeping bags and the polyester tanks were donated by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

To ensure that the items will be utilized in disaster related event, the DSWD has entered into a Memorandum of Agreement with the provincial governor and the municipal mayors who are recipients of the said items.

"The MOA states that the items given to them must be prepositioned always in their identified evacuation centers and must be utilized only in any disaster related event", Garcia said.

Garcia further explained that the beneficiaries were required to establish evacuation centers that are suited for evacuees in any form of calamities. (Oliver B./PIA 2) [top]
