Get involved in
BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
Presidential Spokesperson Anthony Golez said the resources and manpower in the region in terms of disaster management is not sufficient, so he is encouraging the people and non-government organizations to get involved with disaster response or any aspect of its management.
Golez, together with Presidential Assistant for Western Visayas Raul Banias, was among the resource speakers at the Collapsed Structure Search and Rescue pilot test refresher course conducted at the Bacolod City Government Center recently.
The training sponsored by the Office of the National Civil Defense and the City of Bacolod, aims at sharing the best practices of other countries to local rescue groups in terms of disaster management. It was attended by experts from Nepal, Bangladesh and Indonesia.
