As part of the Operation LISTO flagship program of the Department that guides the LGUs and DILG personnel on actions needed to be undertaken before, during, and after disaster, the DILG Region 02 conducted the Capacity Enhancement for the Regional and Provincial Operation LISTO Teams on May 31 to June 1, 2018 at Hotel Carmelita, Tuguegarao City, Cagayan. The Operation LISTO program has been an essential mechanism for interoperability among interior and local government as well as with various sectors. It was participated in by DILG personnel who are members of the Regional and Provincial LISTO Teams.
With the big responsibility given to the LISTO teams, the training provided an avenue for the team members to be oriented and guided of their roles, duties and responsibilities. Also aimed at capacitating the team members as link of the Central level on matters relating to reporting preparedness measures before, during, and after disasters, the training consisted of various topics and workshops that ultimately increased their level of capacity.
Topics discussed and activities conducted were 1) Basic Disaster Risk Reduction and Management and Climate Change, 2) Operation LISTO, 3) Disaster Response Plan, 4) Basic Meteorology, 5) Google Drive Reporting and Simulation Exercises, and 6) team-building activities.
During the closing ceremony, RD Jonathan Paul M. Leusen, Jr. ended the 2-day activity by motivating the Listo team members to perform their tasks well, and by thanking them for their continuous effort for the improvement of the Department’s programs.
