Senator Lito Lapid to Require Elementary & HS Schools To Teach Disaster Mitigation Subjects

Senator Lito Lapid wants both elementary and secondary schools to teach disaster awareness and mitigation subjects.

On Friday (January 17, 2020), Lapid emphasized the importance of teaching preparedness for disasters and natural calamities following the eruption of Taal Volcano last weekend that affects thousands of residents.

In November 2019, the lawmaker said that he filed Senate Bill 1140 seeking to require primary and secondary schools to explain natural and man-made disasters. The program aims to instill disaster preparedness.

The bill wants elementary and high school students to be active in disaster mitigation activities. The disaster awareness subjects could allegedly help the country in the long run, according to the senator.

Mahalaga na bago pa man tumama ang kalamidad sa ating bansa, nakahanda na ang ating mga kababayan. Hindi na sapat ang rumeresponde na lamang tayo dahil may nasira ng istruktura o may nasaktan na tayong kababayan. Kailangan maaga pa lang ay maiwasan na natin ang may masaktan at masirang mga ari-arian,” Lapid said.
