Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (MDDRMC) Malay will be hosting a four-day Contingency Planning Workshop in Boracay.
According to the message sent by MDRRMC Malay, “this is in line with their goal of ensuring disaster resilient communities and to strengthen the system of early preparation especially for the island.”
Furthermore, the said workshop aims to establish an innovative version of risk reduction for a well-coordinated and integrated response mechanism among various government agencies.
As the Philippines is currently revising their national contingency plan, it is anticipated that presenting these experiences in the island of Boracay will provide an opportunity to discuss challenges, strengths and areas of improvement for emergency response preparedness and capability in the municipality of Malay.
Meanwhile, Contingency planning workshop in Boracay is scheduled to perform on October 27-30, 2014 at Eurotel Hotel Boracay.
