Since the Philippines is a country of disasters, we need to be ready especially when we are in a pandemic. This Emergency Response Plan will ensure each of us to reduce such injuries and protect our community if a typhoon suddenly occurs.
Brgy. Santiago is full of subdivisions, most of the houses here are made up of cements or any kind of material that can make the infrastructure stronger. Most of the people in our community are not that familiar with the plan impacting the community to practice such rules imposed by the government especially that we are in the middle of a pandemic. To implement the social distancing, the plan created was to put modular tents in evacuation centers to avoid more contacts of the people.
The image also would be posted in each house as this would raise awareness to the people inspecting on how damage each house. This would also allow the inspector to know which materials are suitable for your house.
Brgy. Santiago is common to have many electrical posts. Most of the houses in our barangay are built from cement as this makes houses strong. Many people also are not aware of our community’s plan especially when we are in the midst of pandemic. That is why we must follow the following reminders beforehand which are the following:
1. Drop or drop down to the floor.
2. Take cover under the study table, table, and furniture.
3.Protect your neck with your arms.
3. Avoid from hanging objects, falling objects, or tall furniture.
4. If you are already under sturdy furniture, hold it and be prepared to move with it.
1.Bring at least 1 gallons of water as people can't live without water for at least some days
2. Store food that is ready to eat and that can stay until three days without being refrigerated.
In case of any minor injuries , first aid kit will help you.
To stay updated of any news from the government and to asko for help.
Pack your essentials beforehand as this will help you once you evacuate.
This would help the community who to call in case of an emergency.
The part in the preparedness should be implemented here in response.
- They are the one who are responsible for evacuees that are injured and check the temperature of the evacuees.
- They are the one who is responsible if there is an emergency in case of fire.
- They are the ones who are assisting policemen in case a problem occurs.
- They are the one who will be responsible if something bad happens.
- is essential to each person in the evacuation center as we never know how long the community would stay in the evacuation center aside from having stock of goods for them.
- To keep them warm.
- Canned goods are not healthy especially in the child. To boost their immune system by eating healthy foods like vegetables and fruits.
- This is where the evacuees will sleep. As we are in a pandemic, we must implement social distancing.
- must be observed in the evacuation center as this is a way to know if each person in the center is safe. Asking them such questions about their health is a must to extra ensure their state of health.
1.Evacuation plans going to the center must be posted in every infrastructure such as houses and convenience stores.
2.People must evacuate their homes once the condition outside is safe while maintaining the protocols that the government has made for COVID-19.
3.When evacuation is the time to happen, remember to bring what you have prepared to bring for you and your family.
- Since most of the people in the community have cell phones and social media, a post will be updated when to evacuate in all media.
- As we have barangay patrol, the tanods would be announcing through the speaker of the barangay alarm the people.
1. Mayor and other official governments would visit the evacuees and ask them how they are doing .
After the devastation has ended, not all the people in the community can’t cope with what has happened to the community. With that being the problem, we need to prepare for them to lessen the burden in their hands.
- These are the numbers that will help you.
- Once the typhoon or earthquake has stopped, agriculture is one of the most affected parts of the local community.
1. If the farmer has crop insurance, they will just tell to PCIC (Philippine Crop Insurance Corporation) and ask for seeds to help them regain their crops.
2. If the farmer doesn't have crop insurance, we will ask the Mayor's Office to contact a government that is connected to agriculture and give us a seed, so the farmers will have seed to plant again.
- Crop insurance is purchased by agricultural producers, and subsidized by the federal government, to protect against either the loss of their crops due to natural disasters, such as hail, drought, and floods, or the loss of revenue due to declines in the prices of agricultural commodities.
1. Cement is the best choice to use. Because it's stronger than other materials.
2.If there are windows that are broken, we must change it into impact resistance glass.
3. Assign construction workers to fix the damaged roads.
