Disaster Preparedness in Schools in the Philippines
Rob McBride: An evacuation drill for the children of Banadero Elementary School, orderly columns of youngsters moving out to designated assembly points, an essential exercise when living in a shadow of the Mayon Volcano.
Paulina Vibal: Due to these drills given to us, we are not anymore afraid because we already know what to do in times of calamities.
Rob McBride: A reassurance with children like Joshua Loria. Now 11, he’s already experienced two evacuations in his lifetime.
Joshua Loria: There were lots of people everywhere and we felt worried. We did not know whether our home would still be there when we got back.
Rob McBride: Living a few minutes walk from the school, thankfully his home has escaped damage. But everyone knows the risks of living in one of the most disaster prone areas of the Philippines, a volcano on one side, on the other, the Pacific Ocean which spawns devastating typhoons.
Ruined buildings attest to the destructive forces of nature down the years, most recently 2006 when a typhoon brought tons of volcanic debris, crashing down the mountainside.
Across the country, hundreds of schools were destroyed and damaged, effecting half a million children and UNICEF has been supporting efforts to restore the education system. New day care centers have been built and new school buildings have been constructed to withstand typhoon-force winds.
Elmer Texon: And steel door. The frames are also made of steel.
Rob McBride: Vitally important in a country that’s on average receives 14 typhoons a year, and where schools served the whole community as evacuation centers in times of emergency.
Adelia Vibar: Floods, typhoons, Mayon eruption. This is an evacuation centre.
Rob McBride: While everyone hopes there won’t be one, preparing for another disaster is a fact of life.
