Disaster Preparedness and First Aid Handbook

April 15, 2020 Wednesday

In 2011, then Senator, now Deputy Speaker and Antique Congresswoman Loren Legarda, in partnership with various government agencies and units, launched this Disaster Preparedness and First Aid Handbook to provide information on the causes, possible risks, and steps to do before, during, and after the occurrence of hazards, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, tropical cyclones, flood, storm surges, thunderstorms, tornadoes, landslides, heat waves, structural collapses, and fire.

Early warning and action for natural and human-induced hazards will save lives, livelihoods, and resources. As we continue to arrest the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, let this handbook help us identify more ways to build resilience at home and within our communities.
