The City Government of Caloocan, led by Mayor Dale Gonzalo “Along” Malapitan, received the Gawad Kalasag Seal of Excellence for the
‘Fully Compliant’ rating of the Caloocan Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (CDRRMO).

The said award was conferred by National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC), stating that Caloocan City is generally adherent to the standards for the establishment and functionality of the local councils as prescribed in Republic Act no. 10121.

Mayor Along expressed his appreciation to the NDRRMC for the recognition and likewise commended CDRRMO for its efforts to follow through his directives in line with disaster preparedness.

“Nagpapasalamat po tayo sa NDRRMC sa pagkilalang ito. Nagsisikap po ang pamahalaang lungsod upang tiyakin na handa ang Caloocan sa anumang sakuna,” he said.

“Kinilala ko po ang lahat ng bumubuo sa CDRRMO, sa pangunguna ng kanilang Chief of Office na si Dr. James Lao at Action Officer Alex Nadurata. Patuloy na nagbubunga ang inyong pagtugon sa ating direktiba noong ating inagurasyon hanggang sa ating State of the City Address na palakasin ang ating pagresponde sa sakuna at aksidente,” he added.

To recall, Mayor Along prioritized the establishment of eight (8) Quick Response Stations across the city and instructed CDRRMO to train its first responders for efficient response time especially during calamities.

“Sinanay natin ang ating first responders para sa mas maagap na pagtugon sa panahon ng kalamidad, ikinalat din po natin ang walong Quick Response Station sa tatlong distrito ng lungsod,” the local chief executive stated.

“Kaugnay ng ating sinabi noong ating unang SOCA, isa sa mga pangarap ko para sa ating lungsod ang maging isa tayo sa nangungunang DRRM Office sa buong Pilipinas. Hangad natin na maging alerto, handa at maaasahan ng bawat Batang Kankaloo.” Mayor Along added.
