Residents of Toledo City and the Municipality of Dumanjug can expect to avoid flood-related damage and losses as the new Flood Early Warning System (FEWS) is installed in their respective areas. FEWS will enable the recipient communities to respond to warning messages appropriately and in a timely manner.
The ceremonial turnover of the Flood Early Warning System to Toledo and Dumanjug was held at Radisson Blu Hotel today October 24.
DOST-PAGASA together with the Government of South Korea through the National Disaster Management & Research Institute (NDMI) implemented the USD $1-Million project entitled “Strengthening the Capability of the Republic of the Philippines on Disaster Risk Reduction.” It is funded under South Korea’s Global Projects on Disaster Risk Reduction (GPDRR).
The main objective of this initiative is to provide as much prior warning as possible of an impending flood to the authorities and the general public, as well as to improve the disaster risk reduction capabilities of Toledo and Dumanjug.
This project is the first-ever in the Province of Cebu. The implementation started last June and will be completed in November 2022. (By: PSTO Cebu)
