0 72

Putting premium to disaster preparedness is one of the best ways to cushion the impact of natural or man-made calamity particularly the anticipated “Big one.”

Las Pinas City Mayor Mel Aguilar issued the statement during the Executive Course on Basic Incident Command System last week

“Being informed and understanding the consequences of an emergency will save more lives and property,” Aguilar said

The Incident Command System Executive Course is designed to fully capacitate city and barangay elected officials and department heads for effective and efficient Incident Management during disasters, incident, and planned events.

The mayor also stated that the training would give more insights on how the key offices of the city government can be proactive in disaster response.
