Last November 10, around the third anniversary of Super Typhoon Yolanda, WeatherPhilippines conducted another ‘Weather 101’ in Tacloban City, this time for DepEd Region 8 teachers and in partnership with CitySavings. It also coincided with the government agency’s Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Youth Camp.
“The training conducted by the WeatherPhilippines during the Region’s first DRRM Camp was timely, relevant, and imperative. It helped the participants understand more the most common hazard faced by the region, cyclone, and made them even more prepared for any disaster. The partnership that DepEd Region 8 has with the WeatherPhilippines was just superb. Thank you so much,” said Eden Dadap of DepEd Region 8.
Tacloban City inspired WeatherPhilippines to initiate its nationwide capacity-building program, which has already trained more than 1,000 disaster-risk reduction officers, moving closer towards a #WeatherWiser nation.
