With disaster risk reduction and management (DRRM) being one of the top priorities of the City Government under the administration of Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan, the City DRRM Council conducted trainings on First Aid, Basic Life Support and Basic Water Rescue for the officials, tanods, lupon members and senior citizens of Barangay San Roque Buri last October 10, 2014.

The skills that were taught during the training were meant to equip the participants with the capabilities needed for their role as the first responders in the event of disasters and emergencies.

This is in line with the CDRRMC’s main goal of making the city more capable and more prepared to act before, during and after disasters. As the most basic unit of the government, barangay is best place to start.
