The City Government of Olongapo through the City Disaster Management Office (DMO) is conducting a three-day Rapid Damage Assessment and Needs Analysis Training on April 27 – 29, 2009 at the Olongapo City Convention Center (OCCC).

The training is designed to equip participants with the knowledge, skills and techniques on damage and needs assessment and reporting system. It also aims to further enhance coordination among government employees to facilitate response and relief activities following a large-scale disaster.

Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. tasked DMO Head Angelito Layug to facilitate and organize the said activity.

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.

“This training will help the city government anticipate and forecast possible disasters, improve the readiness in the city and lessen the hazard impacts to the community,” said Gordon.

  • I'm not really familiar what is the extent of the damages during natural disater, but I could only assume it's horrific when mother nature bestows her wrath. I've been doing a lot of reading with great interest all the efforts and the results of the DMO. I have to commend whomever is leading this catastrophy.
