The Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (LDRRM) Plan is the platform of every local government units in the fast delivery of services concerning disasters.
The Municipality of Salcedo, Eastern Samar, being located in an area prone to natural disasters such as typhoons, landslides, eathquakes, tsunamis and wildfires needs to have an effective LDRRM Plan following the standard set by the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (NDRRM) Council.
An effective LDRRM Plan does not only focuses on its interventions to natural disasters but also to man-made disasters such as roadside accidents, vehicular accidents and fire. It should also include the programs, projects and activities that have emphasis on the Disaster Prevention and Mitigation, Preparedness, Response and Rehabilitation and Recovery.
With our combined experiences and expertise, and with the help and support of our partners from national agencies, and the local and international NGOs, the stakeholders, we crafted the Comprehensive LDRRM Plan 2019-2023. This collaborative effort aims to achieve the common vision to empower the people and create a resilient community bounded by values.
