Las Piñas holds disaster preparedness training
Las Piñas City, through its Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office, has conducted a four-day family emergency preparedness and camp coordination training in Tagaytay City amid the renewed call for vigilance in the wake of threats resulting from calamities.
Las Piñas Mayor Mel Aguilar stressed the importance of trainings on family emergency preparedness, camp coordination, and camp management for all 20 barangays in strengthening the disaster resilience efforts of the city government.
“I have always believed that being prepared with proper trainings and support in responding to disaster is our first line of defense to effectively response to prevent loss of lives and property, especially that Las Piñas is considered at risk in case of a strong earthquake,” Aguilar said.
Around 100 trainees from different barangays in the second district of Las Piñas together with representatives from Barangay Pamplona and BF International-CAA participated in the four-day training that aims to upgrade the skills of emergency responders in the communities.
