CAINTA RECEIVES ‘GAWAD KALASAG SEAL OF EXCELLENCE’
FROM NDRRM COUNCIL
The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, through the National Gawad KALASAG Committee, conferred the Gawad KALASAG Seal of Excellence to the Municipality of Cainta as Fully Compliant last December 7 at The Manila Hotel, Metro, Manila. The plaque was received by MDRRMO Head Mr. Eric Erevalo.
With a rating of 2.44, the municipality has reached the standards for the establishment and functionality of the Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Councils and Offices (LDRRMCOs) category for CY 2022 as prescribed in the Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction Management Act of 2010 or the Republic Act No. 10121.
Gawad KALASAG (KAlamidad at sakuna LAbanan, SAriling Galing ang kaligtasan) was established in 1998, in Search for Excellence in Disaster Risk Reduction and Management and Humanitarian Assistance.
This served as the country’s recognition and award scheme for various stakeholders who promote and implement disaster risk reduction and management, climate change adaptation (DRRM-CCA), and humanitarian assistance programs that protect and shield high-risk communities against extreme hazards and render them more capable of addressing their vulnerabilities.
