Abstract

Residents of Barangays Dela Paz, Langkiwa and Timbao were asked to fill out a questionnaire to determine their level of awareness and readiness on DRRM. A seminar-workshop was conducted to find out if the level of awareness and readiness of the respondents would improve. Prior-workshop results revealed that PWDs and senior citizens were not aware, and not ready, if certain calamities or disasters occur. Respondents who have family member with disability were very aware, and moderately ready and respondent with a senior citizen ly member were moderately aware, and slightly ready. After the seminar-workshop, PWDs, senior citizen and their families are very aware, moderately ready to prepare for and respond to an incoming disaster there is a significant difference in respondent's level of awareness and readiness on D before and after the seminar was given. However, there is no correlation between the level of awareness and readiness and respondents and their demographic profile. The local govt unit must be informed about the result of the study so that they can make appropriate action.
