MGB 7 recently turned over more than 500 poster-brochures on understanding landslides to several Disaster Risk Reduction Management (DRRM) offices of local government units in Cebu Province.

The materials will be posted in various public areas in the community and in the households to educate the people about landslides and other geohazards around them.

MGB 7 Director Armando Malicse consistently reminded LGUs to be guided by the geohazard maps, implement early warning signs, and conduct preemptive actions.

The IEC materials were distributed last December in Alcoy, Dalaguete, Boljoon, Balamban, Pinamungajan and Toledo City. The bureau will continue to distribute the materials to the rest of the LGUs this year.

This is in support of the government’s continuing efforts to create disaster-resilient communities in the country. (IO)
