By Michael Vencynth H. Braga/FPL (The Freeman)

Other local government units in the country want to replicate a proposed ordinance in Bogo City which seeks to establish a system of disaster preparedness in the family, said an official of the Department of the Interior and Local Government.

Willie Jean Cabanag, focal person for Disaster Risk Reduction Management-Climate Change Adaptation Programs of DILG-7, said they will soon come up with a policy making Bogo City’s disaster program dubbed as Information Management in Preparation for Disasters or “I.M. PrepareD” as model to other LGUs in the country.

“Ang gi-push gyod karon is family disaster preparedness. Na-interested ang department ani sa good practice sa City of Bogo nga family disaster preparedness gyod ba. So gi-recommend sa DILG-7 didto sa central nga ipa-replicate,” she said during a Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Summit on Tuesday.

She added the scheme under the said program caught the interest of DILG Undersecretary for local government Austere Panadero during his meeting with the city officials in Bogo last July 14.

The Bogo City’s ordinance institutionalizing the I.M PrepareD program for families, barangays, schools and business establishment is now up for second reading.

The Weather Philippines Foundation Inc. (WPFI), which aims to deliver critical and accurate weather forecasts to the Filipino community, has distributed 10 weather stations (AWS) to local government units in Cebu including Bogo City.

SunStar reported: 
The WPFI turned over the AWS and trained the municipal disaster risk reduction and management officers (MDRRMO), public information officers, administrators and mayors on the installation of the AWS and how to use the Weather Philippines website.
By bringing together the Aboitiz Group's resources and network, and MeteoGroup's technical expertise, WPFI is poised to be the country's premiere private weather information/content provider. The foundation aims to deploy 1,000 AWS nationwide.

The LGUs that received the AWS are Alcoy, Daanbantayan, Dumanjug, San Francisco, Madridejos, Malabuyoc, Santander, San Remegio, Tuburan and Bogo City.

In a press statement, WPFI said it wants to “complement the government’s efforts in reducing weather-related disaster risks in the country, enabling timely response to variable weather conditions to avoid loss of life and property.”

DTI Installs Business Assistance Centers in Bogo City, Daanbantayan

BY: AMOR Y. SALUDAR | Philippine Information Agency

DTI LogoCentral Visayas, June 22 (PIA) ---- The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) – Cebu installed its
Business Assistance Centers (BAC) in Yolanda-affected areas such as in Bogo City and Daanbantayan town.

In a media release recently, DTI-Cebu explained that these BACs will function as the “little DTI” operating within the locality and will implement its flagship projects and basic functions within its geographical scope.
These centers will also function as DTI-Cebu’s contact point or administrative extension in the different affected LGUs and help in delivering and facilitating the necessary and immediate support services related to rehabilitation and recovery efforts for the industry, trade, services (ITS) sectors.

DTI-7 said the BAC installed in Bogo City and Daanbantayan will also aid in building and enhancing linkages with the local government units and conducting consultancies to facilitate the needs of the business sector.
Bogo City Mayor Celestino Martinez and the Daanbantayan Municipal Mayor Augusto Corro are actively supporting the project and are positive thate these centers will bring government closer to the towns business instead of the residents travelling to Cebu City to transact with DTI.

BAC personnel assigned in Bogo City will cover the areas within Bogo City, Medellin and San Remigio while personnel assigned to cover Daanbantayan will also include Malapascua Island.

Programs and services that will be coordinated by the BAC are Bottom-Up Budgeting (BUB), Shared Services Facilities (SSF), Streamlining of Business Permits and Licensing System (BPLS), Industry Clustering/Value Chain mapping, Green Growth and Disaster Resilience, Building Local Competitiveness and Investment Promotions.

DTI will also establish BACs in the municipalities of Sta. Fe and Sogod.

First order of business for BAC personnel is an updated profile of the LGU for identifying raw materials indigenous in the locality that can be used for skills training and livelihood development. 

For more information on the Business Assistance Centers, interested parties may call the DTI Cebu Provincial Office at tel. nos. 255-6971 or 255-3926. (mbcn/AYS/PIA7 with reports from DTI-Cebu)
