Typhoon and flood drills needed – environment group
MANILA, Philippines – Environment political group Kalikasan party-list on Wednesday urged for the creation of typhoon and flood drills, saying there was a lack of organized system and inefficiency in suspending classes during typhoons.
In a report over Radyo Inquirer, Frances Quimpo, secretary-general of Kalikasan, was quoted as saying that flood drills were also needed for communities to be prepared when waters would be released from dams.
She added that there was a need for a centralized source of official information so that parents would know where to find news about class suspensions.
