Earthquakes occur within the Philippine Archipelago every now and then mainly because the country is situated alongtwomajor tectonic plates of the world – the PACIFIC PLATES and the EURASIAN PLATES.

The Philippine Archipelago occupies the western ring of the Pacific Ocean (WesternSegment of the Pacific Ring of Fire), a most active part of the earth that is characterized by anocean-encircling belt of active volcanoes and earthquake generators (faults).
Like floating pieces of a 3D jigsaw puzzle, theEarths plates that form the crust of the Earthare not locked in place. On the contrary, theplates are always in motion and it is notalways a smooth ride. We may not see theplates as they move against each other, butwe can sometimes feel the result in the form ofearthquakes.
A trench is a type of excavation ordepression in the ground. Trenches aregenerally defined by being deeper than theyare wide (as opposed to a wider gully or ditch), and by being narrow compared totheir length (as opposed to a simple hole)
A fault is a planar fracture ordiscontinuity in a volume of rock,across which there has beensignificant displacement. Large faultswithin the Earths crust result from theaction oftectonic forces. Energyrelease associated with rapidmovement on active faults is the causeof most earthquakes
What is the Valley Fault System?The Valley Fault System, also known asthe Marikina Valley Fault System, is a group ofdextral strike-slip fault which extends from SanMateo, Rizal to Taguig City on the south; runningthrough the cities of Makati, Marikina,Paranaque, Pasig and Taguig.
Geological Hazards Mt. Pinatubo - The worst volcanic eruption of the century June 1991 800 - dead P10.6B - damage
. Barren Island, Andaman SeaYou can find this volcano in the Andaman Sea. This is the only volcano that is still activein South Asia. Most part of the volcano lies below the ocean and its peak can be seen at aheight of 354 meters. Its first recorded eruption took place as far back as 1787. Since thenit has erupted more than 6 times.
Major eruptions alter the Earths radiativebalance because volcanic aerosol cloudsabsorb terrestrial radiation, and scatter asignificant amount of the incoming solarradiation, an effect known as "radiativeforcing" that can last from two to threeyears following a volcanic eruption.

Why the need for State of Calamity Area Declaration? To facilitate relief and rehabilitation efforts in calamity-affected areas To control prices and prevent hoarding of basic commodities To carry out remedial measures in the affected areas such as grant of calamity loans to disaster victims, moratorium in the payment of taxes and release of funds from the national and local governments.
Republic Act No. 10121 “The Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010” (DRRM Act of 2010)∗Approved May 27, 2011∗*Implementing Rules and Regulations was approved onSeptember 17, 2010
vulnerability reduced risk assessments, plans, arrangements, training & exercisesreduce risk,vulnerability & hazard hazard/risk analysis Mitigation Preparedness mostly back to normal disaster / emergency Rehabilitation Response situation “ healing”, repair, stabilized reconstruction & recovery no longer direct threat to life/safety and property
Our countrys geographic location makes us prone to hazards.∗ The most effective strategy to minimize adverse effects of disasters remain to be mitigation and preparedness.∗ National Government cannot provide everything, it must establish disaster response-force multipliers in LGUs throughout the country.
IN THE EVENT OF MULTIPLE OCCURRENCE OF DISASTER∗ Each member of the community must secure first his/her self/family’s safety∗ After securing the safety of the family, help others who needs to be helped∗ Communities shall rely on their own capability in addressing the disaster.
HOW CAN WE HELP ? Limiting the use of pollutants Reduce Reuse and Recycle Plant Trees Be prepared Share your knowledge and skills in disaster preparedness Be an advocate of Disaster Risk Reduction & Management ORGANIZE A DISASTER MANAGEMENT TEAM IN YOUR OWN COMMUNITY TRAIN & ACTIVATE BRGY.

BUILDING THE RESILIENCE OF NATIONS AND COMMUNITIES TO DISASTERS ∗ The Hyogo Framework of Action is a 10-year plan to make the world safer from natural hazards.∗ Adopted by 168 Member States of the United Nations in 2005 at the World Disaster Reduction Conference.∗ HFA is the first plan to explain, describe and detail the work that is required from all different sectors and actors to reduce disaster losses. It was developed and agreed on with the many partners needed to reduce disaster risk - governments, international agencies, disaster experts and many others.
Hyogo Framework of Action Priority Action∗ Priority Action 1: Ensure that disaster risk reduction is a national and a local priority with a strong institutional basis for implementation.∗ Priority Action 2: Identify, assess and monitor disaster risks and enhance early warning.∗ Priority Action 3: Use knowledge, innovation and education to build a culture of safety and resilience at all levels.
Hyogo Framework of Action Priority Action∗ Priority Action 4: Reduce the underlying risk factors.∗ Priority Action 5: Strengthen disaster preparedness for effective response at all levels.
"Disaster risk reduction is an obligation for all -- donors, governments and the privatesector. We cannot wait for more disasters to happen to understand the benefits of Disaster Risk Reduction policies.“-- Toni Frisch, Swiss Humanitarian Aid Department
The Paradigm Shift∗ Disaster is an abnormal situation∗ The citizenry looked up at government for support where most of the resources are present∗ Local government are the victims, at times are confused and don’t know what to do∗ Our bureaucracy and other rules and regulations are for normal times
The Paradigm Shift (cont.)∗ Decisions during the first five minutes will affect the management for the next five days∗ You cannot quantify lives; every victim has the right to be rescued, to be treated, and to be supported to be able to go back to his normal life ; every dead has the right to be identified, to be buried with dignity
Things to remember;∗ Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark.∗ Stay fit, as this maybe required when time comes.∗ Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs, the Titanic was made by professionals.∗ No matter what the storm, when you are ready and your with GOD, there’s always a rainbow waiting.
