ESTABLISHING THE INCIDENT COMMAND CENTER
Whereas, the Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010 (RA 10121) declares that it is the State’s policy to address the root cause of vulnerability to disaster by strengthening the institutional capacity for disaster risk reduction and management (DRRM) and building resilience of communities to disasters and climate change;
Whereas, RA 10121 calls for the adoption of DRRM approach that is holistic, comprehensive, integrated and proactive in lessening the impacts of disaster and climate change, and promote the participation of all sectors at all level;
Whereas, the Act provides for the mainstreaming of DRRM in development processes and institutionalization of policies, mechanisms and programs on DRRM from the national to local level, and the strengthening of capacities of LGUs in mitigating and preparing for, responding to, and recovering from the impact of disasters;
Whereas, the RA 10121 calls for the organization and management of resources and responsibilities for addressing all aspects of emergencies, in particular preparedness, response, and initial recovery steps;
NOW THEREFORE, I, ALFREDO J. CIELO, JR., Municipal Mayor of Irosin, Sorsogon, by virtue of powers vested in me by law do order and direct the establishment of the Incident Command System with the on-scene, all hazard, and standardized incident command organized structure as follow:
