MANILA (Mabuhay) – The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) and the Office of Civil Defense (OCD) launched on Wednesday a new disaster-warning scheme dubbed Project DINA, or the Disaster Information for Nationwide Awareness Project.

The project showcases audio-visual presentations which tackle earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tropical cyclones, tsunami, floods, landslides, fires, and survival kits.

These can be downloaded from: www.ocd.ndrrmc.gov.ph.

“Dahil internet based, makikita niyo na kung anong gusto niyong malaman tungkol sa mga hazards na nabanggit, at kung paano maging preparado at all times,” NDRRMC chief Eduardo Del Rosario said during the launch at the AFP Theater in Camp Aguinaldo.

Each video includes information on what to so when hazards strike, he added.

“Through this project, we give vital information to save people,” del Rosario said. (MNS)
