The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS), together with partner agencies, launched on March 26 at the institute’s auditorium an infochart that serves as a guide for broadcasters when informing the public about disaster awareness and preparedness.

PHIVOLCS, the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas (KBP), Office of Civil Defense (OCD), Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) and Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB), have collaborated to enhance the capacity of broadcast media in disseminating disaster information related to disasters and emergencies through updating the existing Broadcaster’s InfoChart on Emergency Preparedness.

The participants to the launching, both from the broadcast and print media, received copies of the infochart that they can now use as reference in giving out appropriate warnings during emergencies, as well as preparedness tips and precautions relating to various natural hazards and disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, volcanic eruptions, and landslides.

Moreover, PHIVOLCS turned over the materials to KBP for distribution to other media partners.
