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.
