On April 2016 Kumamoto was rocked by a series of big earthquakes, killed dozens of people and destroyed thousands of houses. Aso shrine was home to one of Japan's oldest and largest romon, collapsed. Yet the people in Aso believed that Aso Shrine sacrificed itself to pull the bad energy of the earquakes.
The Barangay Hall received this base radio and two handheld radios as donations recently. The Barangay Chairperson, who is the highest level of authority in the barangay governing unit, has primary access to the radio. In a disaster, she is responsible for staying at the Barangay Hall to receive updates from the City Mayor, City Disaster Risk Reduction Director, local fire station and police station. She then must ensure this information is passed down a communication chain of barangay leadership so that all 3,000+ residents of the barangay are efficiently updated on whether they will need to evacuate. Barangay Kagawads (or Barangay Councilors) each visit 2-3 puroks (neighborhoods) within the barangay to announce updates via megaphone, and also interface with purok leaders and residents to ensure their questions are answered and evacuation needs are met. This last leg of disaster communication can get tricky because it depends on physical travel when the roads will likely be filled with evacuees. For this reason, the Barangay Chairperson has put in a request from aid agencies for a siren, which would quickly alert residents to the need for evacuation. #vignette#ethnography#anthropology#research#disaster#communication#radio#technology#resilience#vulnerability#risk#typhoon#bagyo#kalamidad#supertyphoonyolanda#supertyphoon#storm#stormsurge#tsunami#tidalwave#drr#governance
THE BIG ONE: ARE YOU READY?
Truth be told, I had this story, "The Big One: Are You Ready?," done in today's @manilabulletinlifestyle for these very personal reasons.
1. This recent spate of earthquakes got the apocalypse movie/book fan in me on full alert, paranoid levels, #teotwawki mode.
2. I looked into my cupboard and fridge just after the 5.4 quake that originated from Batangas and sent tremors down my bowl of bulalo at the buffet haunt at the Conrad and I made a grim realization that my food supplies at home would last me and my family no more than 24 hours.
3. The author and resource person Joey Zaballero @joeyzab is a personal friend of mine, a prepper, survivalist, tactical aficionado, and co-founder of @ForgedPH, just the kind of store I would run to if I found out The Terminator was sent from the future to hunt me down and I had to arm myself with everything I needed to stay alive.
It turns out, I'm not so paranoid, after all.
A storm is coming.
The dark, heavy clouds, invisible as yet, but already throwing hints as subtle, very, very subtle, as 1,000 little tremors all over the place, from Batangas to Butuan City, are about to pour down #TheTerminator , #TheWalkingDead , an #Outbreak , #TheGirlwithAlltheGifts , and #WorldWarZ on us.
It's the Big One.
Are you ready?
