“The essence of the month-long celebration is to promote public awareness on natural hazards, and disseminate information on the steps to be undertaken to mitigate the effects of such hazards,” Del Rosario said.
He added that it is the time for the people to focus their attention on the need to prepare for natural disasters.
For his part, Mayor Santiago stressed the importance of always being prepared for times of disaster.
“Ang ating CDRRMO ay inuumpisahan na ang kanilang preparasyon para sa mga paparating na kalamidad sa ating siyudad. Year-round ang preparasyon natin dahil nais natin na aware tayo sa paligid natin,” he said.
July is declared as the National Disaster Consciousness Month by virtue of Executive Order No. 137 on August 10, 1999, to focus on raising public awareness of, and establishing safe and resilient communities against disasters.
