Gov’t staff finishes RDANA training
by Gaby B. Keith / PIO

Around 40 participants from various local government offices and line agencies graduated from a Rapid Damage Assessment and Needs Analysis (RDANA) training held May 29 to 31 at the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (CDRRMO), Lower Rock Quarry.

The activity was aimed at developing a team of able and willing responders who will be deployed at impacted areas and do an immediate assessment of the situation at the ground.

CDRRMO head Yolanda Munar said that the participants were trained on how to determine the type and extent of damages brought about by a disaster including its secondary threats, critical needs of the affected population, and local response capacities.

The RDANA also serves as a basis for recommending the need for international assistance, if necessary.

The training included lectures on various RDANA objectives, concepts, processes, methodologies and linkages to the Philippine DRRM system by resource persons from the CDRRMO and Office of the Civil Defense.

Group simulation exercises were also to give the participants a feel of how to operate during a disaster.

The training was conducted by the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, Office for Administration, in coordination with the OCD-Cordillera and City Human Resource Management Office.

The CDRRMO is mandated by Republic Act 10121 to institutionalize RDANA as a tool for disaster response by providing a quick “snapshot” of the disaster situation on the ground.

In his message during the training’s opening program, City Administrator Carlos Canilao stressed the importance of being prepared for any unfortunate events and having a proactive mindset.

Mayor Mauricio Domogan has often stressed the importance of being prepared for any natural and man-made calamities.
