Disaster councils oriented on EWS
by PIA-Kalinga

TABUK CITY, Kalinga – “Nothing is better than a well informed and prepared community when it comes to disaster prevention.”

Angel Maguen of the Department of Science and Technology-Cordillera stressed this to disaster risk reduction management councils of the province during an orientation on the deployment of Early Warning Systems (EWS) Project here.

The DOST deployed early warning systems in identified flood-prone sites in the province. Maguen said the data that will be gathered through the EWS will help communities and concerned offices come up with the correct response to possible emergency situations.  

Seven barangays situated near the Chico River are beneficiaries of the project. These are barangays Taga and Sucbut in Pinukpuk; and Dagupan West, Laya West, Cabaruan, San Juan, and Calanan in this city.

Each EWS station is equipped with a rain gauge, water level sensor, and a warning device.

Through the station, rain volume and river water levels are monitored and recorded by a sensor that transmits an alarm when critical levels are reached.

Level 1 records 40 percent of water level indicating continued rainfall in the past one hour giving an awareness and alert warning.

Level 2 records 60 percent of water level indicating continued rainfall for the past three hours giving preparedness and alarm while level 3 records 80 percent water level indicating continued rainfall for more than three hours giving a critical warning and the need for a response.

Through the EWS stations, flood-prone communities are alerted and warned on the possible occurrence of floods, and rallied to take proper actions to mitigate the impact caused by such environmental hazard.

Part of the activity was the on-site flood simulation drill in Barangay Sucbut by participating disaster response teams.
