Caraga prepares for landslides

In a move to mitigate if not prevent damages of properties or losses of lives arising from disasters such as in St. Bernard, Guinsaugon, Leyte landslide, the Regional Disaster Coordinating Council (RDCC) Caraga under the auspices of the Office of the Civil Defense (OCD) conducted a Contingency Plan Formulation Workshop on Landslide here recently.

The workshop aims to effectively prepare for, prevent, respond to, recover from and mitigate the effects of landslides. The workshop also aims to organize potential response structure, mechanisms, resources, and disaster risk reduction measures that are focused into landslide.

The contingency planning workshop also aims to build organizational capacity and should become a foundation for operation planning and emergency response as well as for other disaster management related planning.

Contingency planning for landslide in the region is expected to pool resources together and strengthen inter-agency coordination at the advent of early warning signals of an impending landslide disaster.

It is expected to assist in generating commitment among parties involved to act in a coordinated manner before the emergency occurs; mobilize effective actions and resources emergency response and design a concrete and continuous plan until the emergency occurs.

Different regional line agencies and local government units of Caraga attended the workshop. After the three-day activity, the group was able to come up with a useful and effective contingency plan for landslide in Caraga.

The contingency plan is more likely to be implemented in Dinagat Island considering that most areas of the province is landslide-prone.

The plan also ensures the availability of resources of each agency that can be used during disaster. A flow chart on what to do during landslide emergency is also included in the plan. (PIA-Caraga)
