NEWSBITE Kalahi volunteers trained on disaster management To facilitate management of disaster risk, the Kapit-bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS) spearheaded a training on Disaster Risk Reduction Management in its covered municipalities. KALAHISerye 2016|| 75 In line with the observance of the National Disaster Consciousness Month, the Kapit-bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS) spearheaded a training on Disaster Risk Reduction Management (DRRM) in its covered municipalities. A total of 1, 657 Community volunteers from 25 municipalities in the region currently implementing the first and second cycle of Kalahi-CIDSS were trained on first aid, basic life support and basic rescue techniques. Topics such as understanding weather forecast, role of community during disaster, evacuation protocols and climate change among others were also discussed with them. The Local DRRM Office together with the Bureau of Fire Protection assigned in the area were tapped as partners and resource speakers. “The activity is part of our effort to empower people as a community. To achieve one of our program objectives, we have to capacitate our volunteers to be resilient during disasters,” Kalahi-CIDSS Deputy Regional Program Manager Imelda Tuguinay said. “Knowing that volunteers can do well in performing first aides and understanding weather forecast among other things would lessen our worries for the communities we serve,” she added. During the training in Buguias, Benguet, Charlie Bayacsan, one of the community volunteers expressed that his days became very fruitful since he started volunteering. “We are learning helpful skills such as disaster management which we could apply for ourselves and especially to our community,” he added. The training started last July in each municipality covered by the program which are as follows: Pudtol, Apayao; Daguioman, Danglas, Dolores, Lagangilang, Lagayan, Licuan-Baay, Manabo, Peňarubia, San Juan, Tineg, and Villavisciosa, Abra; Bauko, Barlig, Sagada and Tadian, Mountain Province; Hungduan and Mayoyao, Ifugao; Atok, Bakun, Buguias, Kabayan, Kapangan, Kibungan and Tublay, Benguet.
