Contingency Planning for Emergencies - A Manual for [Philippino] Local Government Units


The occurrence of disasters has become an important factor adversely affecting our economic development and social stability. However, these natural disasters such as typhoons, earthquakes, storm surges, and flood occur mainly because of our geographical location. Many of these emergency situations just cannot be avoided. Our government has thus rallied concerned government and non-government agencies to formulate plans in order to prevent emergencies, mitigate their destructive effects and ensure the provision of assistance to those in need. The National Disaster Coordinating Council co-published this document.
