Posted by Nards Go | Posted on June 6, 2019

MAY 24: Upon the invitation of the PTA  of Hanigad Elem School, and members of the Brgy Council of Brgy San Pedro, Surigao City, I conducted a lecture on Disaster resilience to the PTA members, including students, and Brgy officials. My lecture focused on my advocacy which is humanism, there I made them understand, that survival, and more importantly resilience is within their powers, and can be achieved by proper early warning, preparation and training, in fact, the 4 thematic areas in which the country’s Disaster Resilience Law (R.A. 10121) Preparation, Prevention and Mitigation, Response, and Rehabilitation, is actually anchored in Humanism, as the whole community’s resilience focuses on empowerment, which is what humanism is all about’.

 

About 30 participants attended the lecture

Training and lecture was about, Weather disturbance, and how they are formed, the different early warning protocols of PAGASA Warning Signals-flood, and tropical cyclones, evacuation, disaster risk reduction, prevention and management, survival and having a resilient lifestyle.

I do that by emphasizing that we don’t have to be dependent on luck or God’s will, we have the power to survive disasters, which remind by teaching them how to prepare and survive, a disaster, this can be done by early warning, proper preparation, and equipped with knowledge on how to survive.
