RDCC-6 to do in-depth assesment of organizational responses to Typhoon Frank

by ES Subong

Iloilo City (17 July) -- The Regional Disaster Coordinating Council (RDCC) in coordination with the National Disaster Coordinating Council (NDCC) will be holding a two-day impact assessment of typhoon Frank and how the disaster management councils in all levels have done their response, July 18-20.

Civil Defense Regional Director Rosario Cabrera said they are undertaking the assessment to see how the different disaster bodies, government and non-government organizations conducted their responses, what were the restraining factors, and how will they be able to strengthen their mechanism, in the wake of reactions that these councils were not prepared for the calamity.

Cabrera said the massive impact of typhoon Frank is a call for the Disaster Coordinating Councils (DCCs) in different levels to revisit their actual capacities and review their structures, functions and the circumstances where they found themselves in during the calamity.

She said that the sense of preparedness of the local DCCs may yet be not enough to deal with the magnitude of the recent calamity, or it may be that the local officials and the people manning the DCCs may have been constrained by the sudden turn of events.

"Now we see that each LGU should have an operations center open 24 hours in the wake of typhoons and impending storms," Cabrera said.

She added the outputs of the two-day assessment may greatly help the rehabilitation efforts of the Task Force Bangon Panay, for a more effective Disaster management program. (PIA) [top]
