The Institute for Occupational Health and Safety Development (www.IOHSAD.org) held last April 2-4, 2012 a Training of Trainors aimed to strengthen the capacity to develop Community-based Disaster Preparedness programs for various communities vulnerable to disasters, especially people who are most vulnerable to floods.

The IOHSAD coordinated with the Citizens Disaster Response Center (www.CDRC-Phil.com) to assist the organization in developing future trainors for 3 courses: Community-based Disaster Management, Hazard Mapping and Community-based Early Warning System. Participants came from communities who were devastated during the flooding brought by typhoon Ondoy and the Disaster Preparedness project team of IOHSAD.
