The University has been taking an active role in responding to the challenges in disaster risk management and disaster preparedness in conformance with the provisions set forth by the Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010. With over 40,000 students facilitated by 1,700 faculty and staff in 11 campuses, the University has organized the Incident Command Teams (IMT) as an integral part of the university’s active and continuous efforts to effectively prepare for and respond to different hazards and threats that may occur in the university. The IMT members serve as the University’s first responders and front liners in terms of disaster response and recovery operations.
The ACTION Center, in partnership with different LGUs conducted 6 webinars in total. The activities aims to ensure that the designated members of the BatStateu Incident Management Teams and building marshals will continue to gain knowledge and skills on safety and preparedness on specific hazards.
