Municipal  Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council of Tayum conducted a Community-Based Disaster Risk Reduction Management Training at the Tayum Evacuation Center on February 4-6, 2020, in partnership with PDRRMC-Abra and Office of Civil Defence-CAR.

44 Barangay captains, officials, and health workers crafted their Barangay Disaster Preparedness Plans during the training workshop. Disaster preparation, response, and rehabilitation were included in the plans.  

Municipal DRRM Officer Edwin Solano said readiness, timely reporting, and proper coordination among the barangays are crucial to avoid casualties during calamities. With these, the LGUs can determine appropriate actions with the help of the barangays.

The LGU has an evacuation center that can accommodate 40 families. Food packs, kitchen utensils, hygiene kits as well as the rescue and clearing operation tools are always ready for any emergencies.
