An average of 20 typhoons and dangerous storms arrive in the Philippines from the Pacific Ocean over the eastern seaboard yearly.
All governmental and private entities responsible for large segments of the population  should be prepared for these fateful natural disasters and put into force mitigation techniques to reduce potential risk and loss of life. Information, preparation and understanding of these massive natural disasters is critical for the effective reduction in loss of life and limb.
Over 800 people were killed by the eruption, mostly by roofs collapsing under the weight of accumulated and saturated wet ash, a hazard that was largely exacerbated by the simultaneous arrival of Typhoon Yunya. At the writing of this paper, the Taal Volcano is currently exhibiting signs of another eruption. Bad weather, especially during typhoon season, poor maintenance, overloading of vessels -- especially during the Christmas season as families return to their villages for reunions -- and lax enforcement of regulations has brought many tragedies. The need for terrorism suppression and bomb analysis, search techniques and evacuation procedures are critical.

With the increasing frequency and severity of disasters that the country has experienced for the past years, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) is urging all local chief executives (LCEs) to conduct early preparedness actions to reduce disaster risks in their communities.
In a directive issued to all provincial governors, city and municipal mayors, including punong barangays, DILG Secretary Mel Senen Sarmiento said that preparedness actions include: creating necessary systems and structures, institutionalizing policies and plans, building competencies, and prepositioning equipment and supplies. He said an Incident Command System (ICS) should be established in every local government unit (LGUs) which is to be activated in response to disasters, and LGUs should hire one Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) officer and three DRRM staff including Barangay DRRM committees. He urged  LGUs to review their protocols and policies and issue an Executive Order resolution or pass an ordinance to institutionalize pre-emptive and forced evacuation when a disaster or emergency has been declared and danger of loss of lives is imminent.
More importantly, Sarmiento also urged LCEs to stockpile basic emergency equipment and supplies, purchase and maintain water level and rain gauge stations, and  ensure the installation of signages and markers in identified hazard and danger zones in coordination with concerned agencies.
In order to effectively implement the above early preparedness actions, he said LGUs may utilize 70 percent of their Local DRRM Fund pursuant to a NDRRMC, DBM, and DILG Joint Memo Circular issued earlier  on the allocation and use of the DRRM fund.
