DOST VIII organized a 1-day DRRM training for its beneficiaries and stakeholders last March 10, 2023. The training’s speakers were representatives from DOST-PAGASA, DOST-PHIVOLCS, DENR-MGB, DENR0EMB, and Bureau of Fire Protection, who placed emphasis on the context of disaster risk reduction and safety. The activity was virtually attended by more than 90 participants composed of DOST-VIII Mirco, Small, Medium Enterprises, partners from the LGU and academe, and DOST VIII officials and personnel from the six provinces. 

The training was started off by Mr. Rey Ezekiel Barbasa (Civil Defense Officer I), who stated that the Philippines constantly experience a multitude of disasters due to the country's geographical location and topography. Additionally, on the context of disasters, the Philippine DRRM shifted from a “reactive approach” to a “proactive approach” to effectively rectify damages brought on by disasters.

Moreover, the sub-topics concerning to the matter of “Understanding Hazard” were effectively discussed and conveyed by each representative from the various organizations involved in DRRM. It was then followed by the speakers of the afternoon session, namely: Ms. Cherelyn Lubang (OCD) who discussed about the importance of establishing Disaster Control Groups. “Accountability and Unity” among individuals were the focal point of the concurred session led by Ms. Lubang. A concluding session was then led by Mr. Barbasa with regard to the matter of DRRM application in one’s home and workplace. Furthermore, the speaker highly mentioned the necessity of eradicating the trait of “complacency”.
