Participants to the said course come from the different departments and offices in the city government who will be directly involved in responding to natural disasters. The course includes the sharing of information and experiences on the lessons learned from one of the most devastating disasters in Zambales, the Mount Pinatubo eruption in 1991.
Topics in the said training include ASEAN Governance and Guidelines for Damage and Needs Assessment, working with the media, methods and tools for improving DANA Group Activity – Application Tools and Technology using GPS, among others.
