MUNICIPAL DISASTER RISK REDUCTION AND MANAGEMENT PLAN 2012

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The Municipality of Pura belonging to the 1St Congressional District of the Province of Tarlac turned to a fourth class municipality in 2009. It is equipped with basic infrastructure and utilities such as water, power, communication and road networks. It is within the cross road of two major soon to open thoroughfare, the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Express way and the East-West coast road (Dingalan-Lingayen Highway) which pose a great potential for economic growth.

The Municipality of PURA takes pride in its rich cultural heritage through the LGU initiated celebration of the annual “Panagyaman Festival” and the “Harvest Festival” which was enacted as means of saying Thank You to the Almighty God for the bountiful blessings bestowed upon the citizenry.

Being basically an agriculture town, a big percentage of the land is devoted to agricultural production and thus scattered in all slope ranges. Slope ranges are directly proportional to erosion potential meaning the lower the slope, the lower its susceptibility to erosion. Based on the slope, soil type and rainfall the whole area of PURA has a moderate flooding hazard. This means that flooding may occur in some spots (Cadanglaan, Maasin and Buenavista) with natural depressions and directly adjacent to bodies of water, specifically Susubaen and Baldo Creek.

Though gifted with rich agricultural land resources, this does not exempt the Municipality from the challenges of natural hazards such as typhoons, earthquakes and El Niño. It has been recorded that the most significant typhoons that visited the Municipality are Typhoon Ondoy (September 2009) and Typhoons Pedring and Quiel (September 2011). These supertyphoons devastated agricultural crops since their land falls were just in time for the harvest season. Farm to Market Roads were also destroyed making it harder for the agricultural sector of the locality to transport their crops left undamaged. More barangays were brought into floodwaters. Consequently, it brought a serious problem in the locality since the livelihood of the local populace and the stable products of the municipality have been severely affected.

This is a recurring disaster which invariably creates social and environmental impacts that can have severe repercussions for the society. Such unanticipated damages can also slow the recovery process by raising costs and complicating remedial action plans. Taking into account that Disaster Risk Reduction is a global concern, the Municipality had embarked into conducting series of community awareness seminars on disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation to generate support and encourage community involvement in the formulation and implementation of the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Plan.

This plan will serve as a guide in the implementation of viable Disaster Risk Reduction programs which shall have emphasis on the following aspects, to wit:

  • Enhance LGU Capability for Disaster Risk Reduction and Management by building up LGU resiliency;
  • Mainstream Disaster Risk Reduction and Management/Climate Change Adaptation concepts in the planning process;
  • Intensify DRR Information and Education Campaigns to develop awareness among vulnerable communities;
  • Develop Disaster Preparedness and Response through an efficient and effective response mechanisms; and
  • Vulnerability Reduction.

In general, this plan aims to save lives, prevent excessive sufferings, secure properties, minimize damages during disasters and calamities and achieve a rapid and durable recovery.

The Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Plan will entail a total budgetary requirement of 2, 179, 052.90, 70% of which shall be for prevention/mitigation/preparedness and 30% for quick response.

This will eventually sourced out from the 5% Calamity Fund allocation of the Municipality.

THE MUNICIPAL DISASTER RISK REDUCTION AND MANAGEMENT PLAN

MUNICIPALITY OF PURA, PROVINCE OF TARLAC

  1. INTRODUCTION
  1. Rationale

The municipality of Pura is located at the Northeastern part of the Province of Tarlac of Region 3 (Central Luzon) island of Luzon. A Landlocked as its mother province and its geographic location relative to its surrounding municipalities are from the north, the Municipality of Ramos, Tarlac is about five point two (5.2) kilometers; six point six (6.6) kilometers to the south of the Municipality of Victoria, Tarlac; fourteen point one (14.1) kilometers to the east of the Municipality of Guimba, Nueva Ecija and five point nine (5.9) kilometers from the west by the Municipality of Gerona, Tarlac.

Around 78.5 kms. From the Regional Center (San Fernando City, Pampanga), 55 kms. from Clark Special Economic Zone (CSEZ) (Angeles City, Pampanga) and 144.9 kms. North of Manila. With an absolute location between latitudes 15 34’00”-15 40’00” and longitudes 120 37’00”-120 41’00”.

Pura, Tarlac has a total land area 3,142.00 hectares or equivalent of 31.42 square kilometers which represents 1.02 % of the entire provincial area. It comprises of sixteen (16) barangays of which barangays; Poblacion 1,2, & 3 are considered as urban area and the rest of the barangays are considered rural areas. Based on the 2007 census, Pura has atotal population of 22, 188.

On May 27, 2010, former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo signed into law the Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010 amending PD No. 1566. The new law institutionalizes the disaster risk reduction and management system not only in the National Government but also in the local government units in the country. One significant feature of RA 10121 is the comprehensive utilization of the 5% calamity fund, now the DRRM Fund. In the previous law, the calamity fund can only be used once the area is declared under state of calamity. It is important to note that under Sec. 21 of RA 10121, the 70% of the DRRM Fund can be utilized for pre-disaster programs and activities that would enable the community to become disaster resilient. However, utilization of the DRRM Fund requires the formulation of a DRRM Plan as basis for the disbursement of fund.
