Emergencies are unexpected occurrences of events that can happen any time. Emergency preparedness refers to being safe before, during, and after an emergency or a natural hazard.

Emergency Preparedness prevents suffering from devastation. Every individual in the community has a role in emergency preparedness.

One type of emergency preparedness is developing a Disaster Response Program that aims to cater to the needs of the people before, during, and after a disaster or an emergency.

Specifically, it aims to apply the Disaster Risk Reduction Management Cycle in preparing for emergencies or disasters.

This Disaster Response Program specifically caters in case of a typhoon occurrence, strong or not.

Given that the Philippines is a vulnerable country to disasters, it is difficult for the Filipinos to be resilient.

However, with the development of Disaster Response Programs, the local communities can be less vulnerable to these disasters through proper mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery actions.
